I got a new Apartment today after spending a year at the Salvation Army, saving up my disability $1,300 a month SSDI and my pay as a dishwasher and selling plasma.


First I went on zillow and found the apartment.

I left Fayetteville and took an Uber up to Springdale and got myself into a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment that is tax credited, rent controlled and income restricted.

Moved right on in today.

I think that's a very cool concept. I'd love to be able to do something like that.

I was looking for towels (kitchen and bath), oven mitts, curtain rods, and a tool kit on your list.

I know all this because I just unpacked a flat to bring home.

Congratulations though!
I'm sure you'll have fun setting up shop!
