The cost of gas these days makes living out of town pretty expensive. At least if you have to drive to town on a regular basis. Having to drive 15 miles to town for work can take 60 bucks or so. If you are not driving a gas guzzler. A friend of mine has a Blazer and says it costs 30 bucks just for one trip to town. That would take up way too much of a paycheck. He is moving to town so he won’t have to drive so far…it’s easier than getting a new vehicle. Much better not to have to drive to town so often. In order to do that though you must be able to make money from where you are. A home office. A garden. A craft. Some way of making enough to pay the bills and buy the groceries. I’m working on it.
