Our rent is going up $70 a month. It is Denver, that is what happens. And the amenities have gone down, the pools are gross or have closed (I dropped my gym membership when we moved in here), we now pay an annual fee for parking, and our monthly utilities/fees include $4 a month just to print the bill.
So I need to start looking, I am not sure I can do better however my son has a car and my bankruptcy is paid off so we have more options than 2 years ago. Meanwhile I am cleaning out, and pressuring my kid and his girlfriend to clean out. Her parents live 1 mile away so maybe most of her wardrobe can go there!!
