    Cute

    My apartment that I'm renting temporarily is cute, small but cozy! The community is very nice, with the fountain and it's quite quiet, except for teenagers gathering in front of my window sometimes, but then I either tell them to shut up or call the police, which always works...

    My Escape Pod

    I live in a dinky little apartment after having left my marriage last July.  It's little bigger than a hotel room.   I've literally had to purge out EVERYTHING that is not absolutely essential for daily living.  But it's home, it's mine and I...

    Renting for the first time with 4 friends.

    3 of them are international students, and you would think that they would be the root of my troubles because of getting rent. But that is sadly not the case. We haven't even moved into the place yet, but have been actively getting the first month's rent in early for the landlord...

    It's What I Can Afford

    I rent a place, in a nice complex that's close to my kids so I can see them often. I am a bit of a minimalist and don't need much.  I love that it has a southern exposure and gets bright warm sun all winter long.  My neighbors are pretty quite and respectful so for right now I...

    I'm just here while my house is being worked on,

    but is it normal for your neighbor to leave weird sticky notes on your door. Ex: baby nap time so the hrs of things we can and can't do. We need a central vacuum time so we don't bother others, read all labels before opening any delivery packages. Which the last one I get...

    Apartment.

    We are renting. I would like to move to a slightly less expensive slightly larger place (I have looked and there are a few) but the husband is absolutely against moving. We make so little money I think it would be better in the long run to move to a cheaper place even though...

    For Now Anyway
