Hey there, welcome to the board.

Where in LA, may I ask, do you live? Is it at all possible to move to the outlying suburbs of LA where rent might be cheaper? You mentioned that your rent just went up $500, which isn't a small amount.

I'm in the LA area myself, but live in one of the outlying suburbs. I also commute to work in West LA every day, though I take the bus about 2 to 3 times a week, which cuts my gas in 1/2. Yes, it takes about 20 minutes longer each way, but it still cuts down on my gas and I'm not the one behind the wheel.

Where in LA do you live? And is it possible that you could move somewhere much, much cheaper? You say that you don't own much, so I get the feeling that you could pick up and move fairly easily...
