You might consider renting a house instead of an apartment. I know that where I live around Atlanta, there are lots of houses for rent as people who have moved but not yet sold their houses are desperate for someone to move in and have revised their listings to be for sale or rent.

Rents on houses around here are pretty comparable to apartment rents, but the tradeoff is that it's a lot harder to find the rental houses vs the apartment complexes.

You could get a little more space -- pretty much any house is going to have at least 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, and probably a living room -- and probably not get blown out of the water on the amount of rent you're paying.
