Living In Congested Area To Save Money

Do you feel like living in those spacious colonies with parks and trees in the surroundings and with ample parking space? Do you feel frustrated when you can’t send your child to any place other than school just because you live in a congested area? What compels you to do that? You do it to save money. Right, or may be wrong.

Case 1
When X was in Delhi, he lived in a rented house for Rs. 3500 in a congested society. He would feel unhappy about the locality and the behavior of the people in the surroundings. When he tried

to shift to a better place it was too costly (Rs. 10,000) for him to change. To get a better option with living he shifted to a smaller town where he acquired on rent, a house of his choice at a much lower price.

Case 2
Roger was living with his friends at a flat in Bangalore. The total rent of the flat was Rs. 22,000 and was shared between five of them. You could easily calculate the share of each individual. Scenario changed when Roger had to change a job and moved to Mumbai where he could not find partners to share room rent. When he found some satisfactory flats, the rent was so high that he could

not make a decision. Finally, he shifted in a congested but low rent area.

Case 3
Y was working at Mumbai for some company where he would pay Rs. 15000 per month to his landlord. Being the only earning member of the family it was a big amount for him. Later, he was transferred to Delhi, where the room rent was not that high and in that amount there were flats/houses available on rent in some not so congested areas. Y looked for the options and decided to move to a congested area.

Why, to save money. Y did this thing keeping in mind that he would save at least Rs. 5000 by living in a cheaper house than living where the rent was equal to the earlier place. I don’t know what exactly should be the right thing to do (save money or earn satisfaction by living in a better area) but what I personally feel is to earn satisfaction.

Earn satisfaction, not by exceeding the limits but saving excess money could bring frustration. My suggestion is not against saving money but not to be very conservative so as to lose peace at mind.
