I am looking for a rental in a town (I currently live out in in the country), where rent will cost me 1/3 of my 'scrape by every month' income. I currently spend 1/5 of my income but have MANY extra expenses due to living so isolated. I have looked at my budget and believe that by moving to a town the difference in extra expenses will balance out the difference in rent.
I am a single mum of two pre-teens with no child support from ex and no savings.
Is this a smart move?
I hope your answers will be yes :-)
