We've moved from our rural apartment 17 miles from town into a cozy (read: tiny) apartment right in town. The rent is the same, and the location and privacy is definitely worth the space crunch. We've outfitted the place with tag-saled or found stuff, and have most of what we need. We are still lacking a frying pan and a clothes-containing device, but other than that we're good. Our new place is kind of a DIY-ers paradise: there is lots of room for improvement, and the landlord is more than happy to let of make the improvements ourselves. At the same time, he's tolerant of our crazy whims. He's given us lots of garden space in the yard, and is amenable to some of our resource-conserving ideas as well.
