    Throwing Away My Money

    I loathe the idea of returning to being a renter.  I think it is great for a lot of people and I truely enjoyed the last apartment I had.  It was stress free but that is not what i wanted ultimately and I truely thought I would never rent again....Things change. ...

    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...

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

    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...

    My Escape Pod

    For Now Anyway
