Fear Street: About using our savings to get more bang for our buck, and how to make sure our expenses are reasonable. It’s not that we can’t have everything. It’s just not going to happen. The big city might have its fair share of problems, but it is also filled to the brim with opportunity. If you’re looking for a fresh start and a new outlook on life, then the big city is definitely the place to be. Let’s take a look at some of the perks of moving to the city that will change your life.
You’ll Have an Unlimited Budget
When you’re living alone, you have the ability to have whatever you want. If you don’t like the terms of a certain lease, you can simply move out. If you don’t like the neighborhood, you can simply move. There are so many ways to make this lifestyle work if you love it. You can save a ton of money living alone and saving for a luxurious retirement. But if you don’t mind sharing your space with other humans, the ability to save and have an unlimited budget can’t be beat.
You’ll Be Able to Live Where You Want
There are so many great places to live in the big city. Sometimes, all you want to do is move to a place that you can feel truly at home. The ability to move to any city in the world and choose where you want to live is an incredible privilege. If you love where you live, you’ll be happy to know that you can save a ton of money living in a city compared to the suburbs or the country. You may even be able to move to a city that you’ve never even heard of and save even more money.
You’ll Have an Unlimited Range of Food
Some people are vegetarians and vegans and they’re really attached to their diets. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck. The big city is the perfect place to find a lot of great food options. In the country or the suburbs, you might have to drive around for an hour just to find a restaurant that serves steak. In the big city, you can almost always find something that will do.
You’ll Never Have to Reschedule a Dinner Party
If you’re the kind of person who can’t miss a party, you’re better off not moving to the city. The social calendar will always be packed and you’ll likely be too focused on work to have any time for fun. You can always move to the city when you have to work late or on the weekend, but for the most part, you should avoid it. The city is home to the best nightlife in the world and you’ll never be able to make it to a party unless you want to sleep at a friends house.
You’ll Never Have to Resign From Your Dream Job
This one is pretty important. You will never be able to make enough money in the city to justify bringing your full salary to the table. Even if you work 40 hours a week, you’d only make enough money to cover your bills for a month. You will never be able to save up enough money to where you can quit your job and become a freelancer. Working in the city will give you more time for your hobbies and your family. It’ll give you the flexibility to make time for your dreams.
The Night Life is Only a Short Taxi Ride Away
We talked about this one in the article on the advantages of living in the city, but it’s so important to mention again. If you’re a night owler, the big city is for you. You’ll never have to wake up early for work in the morning because it’s already light out for you. You can spend the day with your friends, or go out on the town and have some fun. You don’t have to take the subway to work because there’s an Uber for that.
The Big City is Always Staffed by Casinos
This one really gives the city a bad rep. We love casinos, and we do our best to keep them out of the big cities, but sometimes they just have to come home to roost. The casinos that are located in the city are always playing host to various fund raisers and events. There’s always a casino party, and if you’re not feeling too enthusiastic, you can always take advantage of the free food and drinks and head to the club instead.
The big city is a chance for a fresh start and a new outlook on life. We’ve all been sitting on the fence about whether or not to move to the big city. Now is the time to take that plunge and make the leap. The big city is a city of opportunity and dreams come true, one step at a time. If you’re ready to take that step, then the big city is definitely the place to be.
