Orange County is expensive. It’s the most expensive when it comes to real estate and housing costs, and pretty high when it comes to cost of living. But we didn’t just move here to pay more for everyday things, we moved because of the opportunities. I took a nice pay raise to move here from LA, and our rent for a comparable 1-bedroom went up by $120 from our LA apartment to $1350 per month. Now $1350 per month is about as good as it gets for the area, but it still feels like so much money every single month. Is it possible to find a creative solution? Because it’s freaking killing me inside. I don’t want to stop saving 30%+ of my income and with so much money going to our wedding, our housing cost feels huge right now, so what other options do I have to make our housing cost more affordable?
