Buying a house for us meant moving outside the city where things were slightly less outrageous in price. I was fine with it since it would mean that I didn't have to take public transportation anymore (not a fan of other people sweating on me) but this whole rush hour traffic thing sucks.
While sitting in my car driving home today I realized that I spend $110 and 11.5 hours driving to get to work each week. That is almost $450/month and over 40 hours in driving - that's a whole additional work week!
Oh how I envy those of you who have a short commute; or gasp - work from home.
What is your commute like?
