Hey everyone! I've been looking at different apartments for a while now and found two that are right next to each other and are gorgeous. Well, the first one is just a studio, so everything is there - living room/bedroom/kitchen in just one room. So, basically, I sleep where I cook. The room is quite big and would definitely fit a small kitchen table, a sofa, and two arm-chairs. Oh, and all the utilities are included. So, that one was the first one that I walked into. I LOVED it. The only problem is that if I cook (even though I don't like cooking too much), everything will smell of food. But there is a small walk-in closet though, which makes me very happy, since I have lots of clothes. The second place is an apartment. There is a living room/kitchen in one room and a bedroom in the other. This one is $100 cheaper than the first one but utilities are not included. I have a full time job and I can afford both but I also want to save 1/2 of my paycheck every month (I get paid biweekly) for a condo/house in a few years. So, my questions is, which is a better deal? How much would utilities be if I get the second place? I try to always economize (that does not apply to bags though...LOL) when it comes to water & heat. I gave a security deposit for the second one but have doubts now. Both are still available and I am hoping to talk with the owner today around 5 and see if he can let me have the first one if I decide that it's a better deal. I need your help!!!! Please let me know what you think!!!! Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
