This is a blog about what it’s like to live as a middle class family in the suburbs of the greater metro area of Atlanta.
I don’t want to sound snooty about my surroundings, but I have noticed that the middle class of Atlanta seems to have a much lower standard of living than I’m used to. There’s nothing wrong with the suburbs, but there is something wrong with the middle class of Atlanta. I am constantly amazed at how high the prices are, but am always surprised when I see someone get a new home within the last year or two.
I see similar complaints about the middle class of Atlanta. Many are spending thousands on a house they may never be able to afford, or they have been renting for years with no idea. Its the same complaints I see about the middle class here in the Midwest, especially with all the new suburbs popping up, which are just as nice as anything I can afford.
In the same way that a lot of middle-class people do, some of us can afford to live in a nice home, but we are only happy as long as we can afford the lifestyle. I think that’s part of the reason why so many people have a hard time renting. I think it’s also a reason why so many people have a hard time buying.
I don’t want to sound like I’m being flip, so let me clarify. A home in the middle of the city, in the suburbs, doesn’t necessarily have all the amenities that a home in the middle of the country might have. A home in the city is going to have less access to the amenities you might want. That’s why I think a lot of people end up renting and buying in the same place.
Thats why I also think a lot of people end up renting and buying in the same place. Thats why I also think a lot of people end up renting and buying in the same place.
For me, owning a home is like having a bunch of friends in my own apartment. Except you have a lot more control over everything, and you can spend a lot less money on each person on your couch.
When I was growing up, our family would rent an apartment together in order to save money. Our parents are no longer alive so we haven’t kept in contact with them. We’ve kept in touch though, and I’ve seen him on various gaming sites. We also have some friends that own homes as well, but they stay in the same place instead of renting.
There is something about that. When you just live with friends, like most people, your life is pretty much a series of convenience. When you’re living with someone you can do everything yourself. You don’t have to go out, buy anything, etc. You don’t have to have any of the chores you’d have to spend money on. So when you live with others, the convenience factor is a lot lower.
