How do you save your spot?

With our alleys snowed in, us D.C. residents have no option but to park on the streets. After spending hours shoveling out our cars, no one wants to lose the spot in front of their house. Personally, I've elected to simply stop driving and walk to the Takoma farmers market, the library, and Safeway. (Besides, I really need the exercise after a week of sitting on the couch.) Here are some of the creative ways we're saving our spots.

The classic: the plastic chair.

Wicker chair.

Stool and a beer box.

Rocking chair.

Chair and a table.


Plant, bucket, and folding chair.

Broken upside-down chair.

Cafe table and chairs (perhaps my favorite).

Recycling containers (you don't need them since the city stopped picking up recycling).

Some sort of wooden structure.

Buckets and a 2 x 4.

Diapers boxes.

Little kid chairs.

Chairs neatly spaced.


Folding chairs.

Pieces of wood.

Or, you could just wait for the snow to melt.

This guy might be waiting until May.

This guy has the best idea... a tiny car!
