Inflation is through the roof. Gas cost me over $50 to fill up my small car this morning. Oh, and my rent is going up $200 more a month. I’m tempted to just never leave my house and eat ramen for the rest of my life. But somehow there is good news.

Yes, you’d have to go a little outside of the major cities, but it could be worth it for these prices.
