I'm a single mom, going to school, working, and living in the same room as my daughter. I initially thought it would be just fine.. i put in bookshelves to seperate our sides of the room but it is just hard feeling like I have no space, and with a roommate next door the whole place just seems crowded. I live in an area that is too expensive, but her dad lives in the area, the school I would love for her to go to is here, and it is nice to be able to walk/bike everywhere I need to and not have to drive. So I have been looking at 2 bedrooms and all I can think of is how does anyone have the money for that? Most 1 bedrooms are close to $1,000..and 2 bedrooms even more ridiculous. I am thinking about using financial aid for half of the rent, but I am nervous about spending more money.
Any single moms out there that can shed some light on some possible solutions? I am trying really hard to save money and I think moving just wouldn't be possible. It would be nice to live comfortably and feel good in your own home though!
