WWYD (yes it's a tax post)

Assuming I get a refund (should be around 2500) I am stuck on what to do with it.

Option A- pay it toward my car so I only have 1 year of payments left.

Option B- move into my own place. I'm immensely hugely unhappy with my current living situation. It's safe, I'm not in danger. No abuse. Just very unhappy. There are 7 of us in a 2bed apartment. I'm done, over it. I literally spend as much time out of the house as possible. When I am home it effects my entire attitude and outlook.

I can do one or the other, not both. If I do move, I'll struggle really hard financially. I'll make it. But just barely.

I'm just so unhappy right now, I can't even really think straight.

I would absolutely move the day I got the money.

I can't imagine not being comfortable and happy in my own living space.  So that would be a priority for me.

I would save it untill you have more money to move out and be comfortable and not struggle.

I'd move. I couldn't deal with 7 people in a 2br apartment.

I loathe walking in the house. Like I literally try to only be there from 11pm to 7am just for sleep. I want to move. I really really want to move. But I keep thinking that may not be the smartest thing to do yet

Option B

I want to say pay it toward your car so that when you are ready to move out it won't be such a burden (been listening to Dave Ramsey too much!) but I would use it to move out if you are that unhappy.
