Hey everyone, whether you're new to working from home due to the Coronavirus, or you've been doing it for years, I'm curious how much time you save every day by not commuting.

I figure I'm saving three hours a day. Now, it's not like I was wasting that time before (mostly working on the train) but I'm definitely getting more done now. AND I've got more personal time too. I've taken to using that time to jog each day.

Three hours is a substantial amount of time to save. In addition to the time savings, how much would you save on train fare and other costs related to the commute?

Over $20 a day on the train, plus some gas. And maintenance. My car is an old piece of junk, for the exact purpose of leaving it at a train station all day. So I can't really factor that into it. I'd still need a car to drive my kids to events, etc.

Saves me from sitting or standing in a packed sardine can fermenting underground. That's what matters.
That and four extra hours of sleep and gaming.

I save on average 2.5-3 hours commuting each day,
plus $65/week parking,
plus gas and car maintenance.

I am thoroughly enjoying this.

Using the time to catch up on hobbies - arts and crafts, gaming, reading, learning.

Using the savings to pay down debt.
