I don't, lol. Unless it's to my mums or shopping!
Going to start taking LO swimming. Baby groups are a good start though? x

Yeah, James wants me to move back in with him, and rent where we want to go is $600/month. He said he'll pay for most of it, but when I think about all the costs of getting out on our own, I get overwhelmed. :S

It's all really about budgeting. OH makes at LEAST $1,800 a month so our rent is $863 but includes water, trash and sewage which makes it $908. Then we have electric and gas separately which is like $60 a month but we leave $100 available for it. Then we have car insurance which is $100 a month. Then Comcast cable/internet which is $100 a month. So in total we pay less than $1,200 a month. That leaves us $600. We usually budget our groceries to $100 a month and yeah! Very Happy

I like how that sounds! FOB and I combined make $1300/mo, and rent will be 600. So i guess I should figure out the budget. I'm so bad at budgeting, but he's used to living paycheck to paycheck and that won't work.

Our rent now is 600 (1000 all together but we split rent; not evenly though Sad ) but we are looking for an apartment and so far the cheapest is 694. OH makes roughly 2500 in the summer and like NOTHING in the winter but job attached unemployment checks. Thinking about getting a job, if only I could find one. It's hard I'll tell you that, but totally worth it!

To get out of the house we usually aimlessly wander round shops or go to the park or whatever.

I'm really lucky to live where I live. I live in a 2 bedroom house with a big garden for £455 a month. I get housing benefit and it nowhere near covers the rent, but I make it work by not buying too much other stuff like clothes and stuff. I make sure Isaac has everything he needs and I only buy cheap food and stuff.
