I don't read every single post on Apartment Therapy. I don't have kids, so I don't read the kid stuff. If you don't like the title of this post, just don't read it.

I have always loved library/dining room combos. The table is useful as a workspace, and dining rooms often go unused anyway. If you're worried about the cost of shelves (which can get pricey even at Ikea), you could look for craigslist/thrift store bookshelves and just paint them all the same color.
Living with Lots and Lots (and Lots) of Books? Good Questions

My husband convinced me to move to St. Louis 2 years ago from Chicago and I couldn't be happier with the decision. In St. Louis we make about the same amount of money (both under $40k), but the cost of living is much lower. We spent about $130k for a 2 bedroom house with a nice-sized yard in a safe, walking-friendly neighborhood. We do both own a car, but we have friends who have 1-car households. Sometimes I miss the excitement of Chicago, but St. Louis has theatre, music, bars, art, and all the other stuff you would want in a city. The job market here isn't as bad as some other places, and there seem to be a lot of opportunities for people in the nonprofit sector, which is what we both work in.
