I currently live off base in a home that I won't be able to afford much longer because of divorce.
I can try to find something else off base and hope it is in a good neighborhood.
Or I can move on base into a much smaller place.
I get $1200 for housing and I currently pay $1300 plus utilities...like $150/month for electricity and $45/month for water.
I can find a place off base for less than $1000 but it would require a deposit that I don't have right now and may or may not take my dog who is a member of the family.
Moving on base I would go from a 4 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom home and dd would absolutely have to move schools yet again. She is in 4th grade and has moved schools 5 times.
I would save money moving on base...or I could find something way below my housing allowance and try it that way.
If I move on base I may have to pay for a fence to be put up...or may not if the previous people had a fence up.
The base school is awesome....plus I would save on daycare because dd would go to open rec and the youth center.
I would be subject to housing inspections on base at any time and would have to lock up my dog who is used to having free roam.
WHat do I do?
