What's worse than shopping at a crowded mall during the holiday season? Finding a parking space at a crowded mall during the holiday season! There is a surefire hack to get yourself a clutch parking spot even if the lot is clearly packed, however, and it’s as simple as small division.
According to a report by Inside Edition, the average person spends 120 minutes shopping in the mall during the holidays. So, if you wait in a parking lane with at least 20 cars, in about six minutes you should have yourself a spot right by the door. Simply divide 120, the average amount of time spent shopping, by the number of spots in the lane and that’s how long you have to wait! (Buzzfeed)
