I have never bought cheap junk. I have always researched and bought the best products I could afford. We tend to shop at smaller family owned B&Ms that are family owned and run.

We lived in a cool area when we first married- historic district, older houses being refurbished. We bought and fixed up an older house. We could walk to restaurants and bars. We rode bikes to Sunday breakfast and jogged by street cars and multi-million dollar houses. We moved to the burbs when our first child was one. Why? Safer neighborhood and better schools.

My kids are millennials. One lives in a tiny apartment in a cool and very expensive neighborhood he will never be able to buy a house in short of a career change. They can walk to cool restaurants. It is a very nice area. I expect they will move to a more sensible area when they have kids. My oldest already lives in the burbs.
