A great reason to move to Windsor

(Note: This post was written by Laurel Regan and originally published in a separate blog called “Why Windsor…”, which was later merged with Alphabet Salad.)

From WalletPop Canada, with thanks to a Facebook friend who posted these links on his profile:

Of the top ten Most Expensive Places to Live in Canada, Victoria, BC (my former city) is the fourth most expensive.

Of the top ten Least Expensive Places to Live in Canada, Windsor-Essex, ON (my new city!) is the fifth least expensive.

Obviously finances and cost of living aren’t the only considerations when the possibility of a big move is on the table, but I’d say they’re a pretty significant part of the decision. Statistics such as those presented in the above links definitely factored into our own decision-making process, and helped to push Windsor into top place on our checklist of must-haves.

    Saw your link at Blogelina, I think we are in the current blogging class together. 🙂

    I am from the U.S. and admittedly know next to nothing about the cities you are talking about. I like the name Windsor though. 🙂 And it being less expensive to live there sounds EXCELLENT! Are you moving soon?

    Nice to see you here – hope you’re enjoying the blogging class too!

    We actually moved here to Windsor at the end of October, so haven’t been here too long, but we’re loving it! I started this blog way back when we first decided to move here, and am continuing it to help educate people about the area and why it’s a great place to be. Windsor isn’t a perfect city by any means, but there are a lot of great reasons to live here and I’m glad to be here.

    Thanks for dropping by and for your comment – much appreciated! 🙂
