Living In Albany, Oregon
There is an obvious size difference when comparing Sweet Home and Albany.
Because I was going to LBCC, a friend of mine and I moved into a small apartment complex called "Brookshore Apartments" at
1539 15th Ave Se
Albany, OR 97322
My roommate and I split the monthly cost of living there in half bringing us down to $400 each. This includes rent, insurance, cable/internet. utilities, garbage, and other costs.
After our first year living together, I got married and my husband moved in with us bringing our rent to $266.67 for each person (meaning my husband and I paid the bulk of the rent).
We will live here until both my husband and I have finished our education and can afford to move.
