I’m sure there are quite a few people out who have had this problem: You rented a house or apartment and had to sign a pretty long lease. After living there for awhile, you either decide you need a bigger place, you got a new job that’s further away, or you just don’t like the place that much… but you’re stuck in your lease.
When my husband and I were first married, we lived in a very small apartment. It was a 1 bedroom and was perfect for us newlyweds After awhile of living there, we got pregnant. We had NO IDEA what to do- there was no way we had enough room for the baby. We ended up having to pay a pretty heafty fine to get out of our lease to find a new place. I wish there was something like Ditch The Space in my area at the time!
