I am considering downsizing...It is Me&my 10yr.old son in a 2bed(joint custody)...I can't afford the oil heat anymore&the downstairs that I takes on water .. heavy rains or hurricanes...I pay full price for 1/2 of an apartment.....I feel for all single Moms trying to do the best they can..We only can do what we can and keep it moving!!! We should start a website for displaced Moms to become roomates in our area&help each other with childcare&rent...Shit!!! Brianstorm!!

I have a small house and few very closets.


I put my extra bed sheets and out of season clothing in trash bags then I use my vacuum attachment to suck out all of the air. I works just like those bags on the info comercials but you can use any bag.
