I'm so glad this article was posted. For us, financially having an apartment makes sense. Maybe one day we will have a house but I don't want to kill myself getting one just because "everyone' has one. Apartment living for me allows me to enjoy my life without having to spend every weekend at Home Depot trying to fix up my house or getting yard work done. It's challenging at times but I've never regretted renting, with the exception of renting a house that wasn't maintained well by the landlord. I find comfort in having others around me even if I don't know all of them. It's nice to be able to spend your weekends outside, with family, & decorating the apartment without having to worry about spending a TON of money updating and maintaining a house. I don't believe anyone should ever make you feel bad for your choice. It's your life, live it the way you want and the way you are comfortable!

You could do like i did and put them in an apothecary jar and display them. Its a little quirky but it definetly gets peoples attention.

I would say to start your own little art gallery full of family photos and artwork that you love. I've done the same thing with my hallway and i love it. I have movie posters, family photo collages, and even artwork that my family has done. Its very special to me and i get to pass it all everday.

I started buying recycled toilet paper and it never bothered me one bit. It bothered my fiance at first because he didn't think it was soft enough but i think he's getting on board about trying to help our planet. If you're gonna waste something like Toilet paper why not at least help the planet a little bit while you're doing it.

I agree with protogarett. I can't see spending money on sticks that i can get outside for free. I have branches in my house and i love them...even if others think i'm crazy.

This curtain rod is the best. It comes standard in my apartment and i love it. I can't go back to using a regular shower curtain rod ever again. I've noticed since having this little luxury that if i shower somewhere that i doesn't have a curtain rod like this i get very claustrophic and end up pusing out the liner which invetibly leads to water all over the floor. I absolutely love it.

If its big enough i would turn it into a tv alcove. Or put some lights in there and make it a cool display!

I have renter's insurance. The apartment that we live in now requires it but i got it before i moved to this apartment because my cousin's apartment burned down so it hit close to home for me...I love it and it makes me feel better to have it. Plus its not all that expensive.
