    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. ...

    For Now Anyway

    it's nice, a perfect size for my daughter and me :)  course, she's accumulated many more toys than she needs, so i'm constantly picking them up and trying to organize a little better b/c of the small space.  but it works for us :)  i like it alot :)

    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...

    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...

    Definitely a day I need to vent - So my bf and I moved into our "garden" apartment in December. It is a new renovation, however, there was a previous tenant who started to move in, but for some reason couldn't stay. He hadn't fully moved in, but had moved a couch, a bed, and a...

    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...
