This gets back to the whole "$600 isn't worth moving but $1200 is" situation.
But is $600 worth moving if I can find a better apartment? Should I stick it out one more year and be fully prepared to move next year?
I found 2 decent apartments this weekend: one cheap but in a bad location, one was super awesome, in a great location, but more expensive. Can I find another great apartment in time? Is the pain and frustration of moving worth it?
