Finding an apartment in Georgia
I have been in GA for almost a year and I still living in a house where I pay for a room and bathroom. I had lost money everywhere looking for apartments and losing the deposit after finding out big problems there, as bugs infestation. This seems to be a real problem in GA. I have a good job but does not pay enough to move into a nice apartment of more than $800. That is the base rent, then you have to add water, sewerage, garbage, electricity, etc etc.
In general the only things that are less expensive here when you compare with NJ is the car insurance and health insurance if you get your own.
GA is about driving long distances, and very expensive food etc.
