Electric vehicles, meanwhile, emit less pollution particularly in areas served by relatively clean power plants. You do not send fumes into the neighborhood while waiting for three cycles to get through a gridlocked intersection or circling for a Costco parking spot, and they are inexpensive to run and maintain.But many potential buyers are turned off by range anxiety : the fear that their electric car would run out of battery and strand them.

If you split bulk items, you and a friend can both see major savings, without being weighed down by more than you need.

So we leave the Woodcat Coffee Bar, and I throw my bag into my car before we head to the lake. The actor checks out the stuff in the back seat, observing bulk size quantities of Special K and Lysol wipes."Did you just go to Costco?" he says. "I love Costco. I just find it very calming, for some reason. The best time to go is, like, a Wednesday at 2 o'clock. You have the whole place to yourself. You don't have to wait for the free samples. And you can buy a bunch of crap you don't need, but you're like, 'Wow, this is a great deal.'"

When asked where I am from, I™ll sometimes say my mom™s womb (she thinks I™m a hoot); otherwise I™ll vaguely say Southern California. For some, my claim to SoCal roots conjures up images of downtown L.A. with its juice cleanses and celebrity cults. I don™t correct them because I™m a tease and desperately want to be big city cool (think: Carrie Bradshaw). Unless further prodded, I rarely admit to my true origins, to my unglamorous upbringing in that uninspiring, bland wasteland that is suburbia“the place that I, as an angsty teen, wanted nothing more than to leave, that I regarded as not unlike the inside of a womb: cramped and seemingly inescapable. Â But I (like Amish teens during Rumspringa) did get out. I packed my bags and left my small town for college. It was that easy. Still, without fail, every four months or so, I grow homesick and long for the things I thought I resented: washing dishes, eating fast food, swimming in the community pool. Every break, I look forward to going home and seeing those familiar places and faces. And yet, after a few days of being back, Iâ€™m reminded again and again of why I didnâ€™t want to be here in the first place. Itâ€™s never because of anything someone said or did and, perhaps itâ€™s precisely because of this lack. When Iâ€™m home, I utter that snub of reluctant suburbanites everywhereâ€“nothing ever happens hereâ€“then join my mom in her SUV and make our way to Costco (for free samples, of course).
