Fund raiser, 52, St. Louis, Mo.
In order to save time, energy and money, my employer is letting us start a compressed work week. We will work 36 hours in four days. I've chosen to work 7 a.m. till 4 p.m.
My commute is 18 miles each way, and this will certainly help save gas and money for me! I'm excited too about a three-day weekend every week.
This is our schedule for the summer, but I think we might have to go back to a five-day work week at the end of summer. I appreciate my employer's efforts to help us stretch a dollar.
In September, there is a possibility that I can carpool with a friend who works about 3 miles away from my office. As gas continues to escalate, carpooling will become a certainty, I think!
I'm 52 years old. I expected things to be easier at this point in my life. NEXT: Brian Washburne: To grandma's house we don't go
