Friday Feet

Good morning Dinks and Happy Friday.  See that picture up there?  That’s what I wish I was doing this weekend, but I’m not.  We are still looking for a new apartment.  We’ve been apartment hunting for almost two months and a lot of the apartments we’re seeing are available September 1st, but our lease is up October 1st.

So here’s our dilemma…do we leave September 1st and move on labour day to get out of our noisy, tiny apartment ASAP or do we wait it out an extra 30 days and move October 1st?  Here are our options: pay double rent because it might be worth it to get away from our noisy neighbour or do we try to rent out our apartment on Air BnB to make up some of the lost rent?

Have any of you used Air BnB?  How was your experience?
