I am a single mother with a rapidly evolving career. My three-year-old and I have been living with my parents for almost two-and-a-half years now, and it’s time to leave. I found a decent (read: not dangerous) apartment complex, and we will be moving in about a month.
I’m excited, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had to budget for myself — and now I’m throwing childcare and car payments into the mix. Have any of you had to make the transition from living with family to flying solo with your kid, and do you have advice? — NaturallyChic
