I'm moving to a MUCH better area of the city to be closer to my new job, which I am really excited about. I wanted to move to this area last year but it was just too far of a commute from the job I had. It's a really nice area and right next to the light rail which I can take into the city whenever I want. Given all of that though, it's more expensive than my current place. The last time I didn't have a garage was in college. I can afford the extra price if I budget carefully, but I haven't been able to save as much money as I'd like to. It seems like some big expense always comes up. I can't decide if it's worth it to pay the extra money. We get some snow in the winter but it melts quickly. It's also generally not boiling hot in the summer.
