Let's the spring break begins. St. George Utah here we come, this is a small town in Southern Utah- 2 hours north of Las Vegas. My husband grew up there, where his friends are still living there and have kids the same ages as ours. It is not only our spring break vacation but also as part of preparing to move there so that we can see the town and meet up with old friends. We went there two months ago and we had decided that we are moving.
Why do we want to move from California? you ask: Even though there are average 350-day sunshine in a year, the beaches are just within 15 minutes, the parks are every corners of our neighborhood , and Disneyland is just 20 minutes away. Kids also go to great school .These benefits do not really make us happy ( I and my husband).
Why are we not happy? you ask: Living in California is so frustrated. The housing costs us 50 % of our income ( one income ). My husband works too hard to sustain us but has no time to rest and enjoy his growing kids. Our family is growing so does expenses. Beside we are in the rat race.
Why do we choose St. George? you ask:
There are many reasons. First is low rent because we are going to be renting part of our in law's house ( basement). Secondly we are hoping to have a slow pace- family oriented life. Lastly the cost of living is going to be cut down a lot if my husband keeping the same job.
If everything goes well as plan we could or would be able to save enough for down payment for our first home soon. The move is just a step closer to live simple. Here is what I wrote about how to start living simply into minimalists. What are you going to do during spring break? Please comments below and give me a share if you think it will help anyone in someway.
