I've been saving $$$ living in a room less than $1000 m/o, but need some more space.
Would you willingly pay $500 more for a bigger room? Or stay and save?
Can't seem to justify the cost, but need to spread out.
Old room 7x10
New room 15x21
- I'd pay more to be closer to work. Those minutes lost to commuting add up. Live near work and enjoy life!
- eBay Michael12The place where one spend more than 50% of time deserve whatever it takes .., of course up till your maximum affordability. Saving for vacations, entertainment make sense but how much time one spend on such thngs , 1 month / 2 month in a year ? Remaining 10 months are spent in place where you live .., it should be as luxurious as one can afford.. the other claim is saving for future ... Certainly should do that but not at the cost of significantly sacrificing your current ... No one knows how much you live, if you live enough long, could you enjoy the savings you are doing now at the cost of stretching your current...!!!
- New dluz61Yes. I lived in a beautiful apartment with an under 1k room for nearly two years before my roommates and I couldn't deal with the landlady or her niece (who she moved into the place)'s bullshit and found a different place for an extra $500 each. Have never regretted it. But tbf, the initial savings from the cheap place helped a lot.
