Six ways to save on parking & put some previous pennies back in your purse


WITH the costs of running a car shifting up a gear, it pays to save on parking.

Follow these steps to put some precious pennies back in your purse . . . 

SPACE AGE: Download app JustPark and get 45,000 parking spaces across the country at your fingertips.

Many are in people’s unused driveways, which can work out cheaper.

If you have your own unused space, you can rent it out via the app, too.
