So we went up to Manayunk today to look at an apartment on main street. The deal seemed too good to be true, and we were prepared. $950 for an apartment on Main Street. The place was incrediblly small. I was uncomfortable just being in there. The entire apartment was most likely 400 sqft. Not big enough for two people with two adult sized beds to live comfortably.
So we are back to the drawing board, once again increasing the rent we are willing to pay, and figuring out how we are going to pay for everything else being an adult entails.
