Public transport definitely. I used to live in Paris, where there's an amazing bus and metro system with stops every few blocks that can take you anywhere in the city with no worries about traffic or parking. On my block, the bus arrived every 7 minutes and the metro every 3-5. It was soooo much cheaper and more efficient than having a car. Plus, I could meet my friend on the opposite side of the city for drinks, be there in 20 min. and not have to worry about driving home. I could also travel alone as a young, single woman day or night without fear.
Driving VS Public Transit: What's Your Preference?

I totally agree with the comment on buying used for kitchen supplies and dishes. It's a good place to search for high quality vintage buys. I've seen really beautiful sets of dishes, glassware, pans mixing bowls and other supplies at my local store. A lot of times people throw out things that don't suit their style anymore, but it might suit yours! Check their calendars too. I know the Goodwill by me has 50% off sales twice a month.
