With all utilities added in we pay about 1,100 a month for our two bedroom place, this goes down a little in the summer and up a little in the winter, due to (propane) heating costs. From what I've seen in the papers and on here, we have one of the better deals in town for a two bedroom place, even if it is small. Even though I like the area we live in, I would love to have more space, and a yard! Oh my gosh what I wouldn't give for a grassy yard for the boys to play in! That is pretty much out the picture for us though, most places advertised would cost us 2/3 or more of our total monthly income, so I guess, we could move up to a bigger place as long as we stop buying food, gas, and diapers.
It bothers me that some people
seem to think that if you can't pay a high rent then you must
be a "certain" type of person, someone is loud, smokes
in the house, has a pet even if it's not allowed, or is just
dirty person who trashes their place. I've known people like
that too, and it stinks that they are making it so much harder
for everyone else. I'm not sure what the solution is, I just
wanted to let people know that you can't judge a person by how
much they can pay.
