cost of living Posted On: 10/29/2009 11:05:14 AM
We recently moved to Wichita due to a job transfer from the East Coast. We heard the cost of living was lower than what we were used to. Were we in for a shock when we received our 1st water bill for a total of 10 days of use the bill was $66.00!. The price of 12 ears of corn $5.00, we paid $1.99 home and isn't grown here? The sales tax is higher and it is even on food. Don't let anyone kid you about how inexpensive it is here, yeah housing is lower because no one wants to live here.

My husband and I moved to Wichita from Connecticut due to a job transfer. I must say Wichita is next to worst places to live out of the 10 places we have moved to over his career. There is nothing to do and no shopping what so ever. I don't see how anyone can say they like living here. On top of that is is expensive. Our water bill was $66.00 for 10 days. The grocery store wants $5.00 for 12 ears of corn. Are you kidding me? I got the same amount in Ct for $1.99. I rather me dead than live here.
