Keeping an extra car that is barely used can be a real money waster. The cost of registration, insurance, gas and monthly payments (if you don’t own the car outright) averages to about $10,000 a year in unnecessary expenditure. Plus, any maintenance to make it run smoothly adds to the money-wasting pot. Your spare car can make spare change: Sell it for extra money, and enjoy the savings. For city dwellers, a great alternative is the use of ride-share programs that allow you to rent on an as-needed basis.
