Active living fail

Not news: Active living is challenging when you have to drive to work every day.

My number one advice for an active and green lifestyle? Intentionally choose to live somewhere that you can either walk, bike, use public transit, or some combination of the three, to get to work and other necessary places (e.g., grocery stores, your kid’s school, etc.).   Easier said than done, especially when considering not only your job, but your partner’s, but a worthy goal.  If you’re not certain that you’re going to be in your current job for many years (and who is?), a lease is A LOT more flexible than a mortgage.  And despite what those tricksy real estate agents and lenders try to tell you, buying a house is NOT a good investment.
