    Stay in the city!!! The burbs are scary!

    Move to the burbs and get more bang for your buck.

    I am conflicted too..

    I would move. If you could get a better place for less money, that’s the way to go. Communting might not be so fun, but tons of people communte 45min -1 hr. for work.  Good Luck! (:

    For me personally, all of the “space” in our house gets wasted. We aren’t big on clutter and ended up getting furniture just to fill space. We spend 9/10th of our time in 4 rooms of our house (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room) which means an entire floor (basement with 2 storage rooms, bathroom, and finished den) as well as 2 rooms on our main level are just sitting empty gathering dust. I HATE COMMUTING and I loathe traffic. I would much much much rather live in an apartment in a city where I could walk everywhere with less of a commute.

    I would move! Based off of all your points it seems that would be the better option. Plus I love living in the suburbs!

    I’d move especially considering you guys are TTC. If you think your place is tiny now, wait until you get all the baby things in there. The commute would suck more but imagine how much you’d enjoy your new place and space when you aren’t working.

    I’d move. I think it’s exciting moving somewhere new. 

    I live away from the city and I wouldn’t have it any other way best place to raise a family.

    good luck

    I’d move, but I’m a burbs girl! DH was the city guy, the move was tough on him.

    I would never move out of the city and have to deal with driving all.the.time.  It is more important for me to be in the city where there are things to walk to and do with baby than be in the boring cultureless suburbs.  No way!

    It sounds like the only thing keeping you in the city is your short commute. Definitely move to the burbs.

    It sounds like you’ve done your busy city living, and now you’re looking for some space to grow into, so I voted you should move.  It would drive me crazy to continue to pay that much for the amount of space you’re describing if the amenities weren’t that important to me anymore.

    However, you said your Fiance really doesn’t want to leave the city.  Is it possible to move somewhere in between where you live now and the burbs, and find somewhere with more space with the same or less expensive rent that isn’t completely burbalicious?

    what about a small town instead of the burbs. areas that have a few streets of shops/restaurants but more space?
