We have 5 kids, a 20, 19, 10, 7, and 10 months. The 10 and 7 year old share a room they are both boys. The 20(girl) and 19(boy) are my stepchildren and they have there own rooms. My 10 month old is in the room with me and my husband. The problem I am having is we need to downsize majorly. We have alot of debt, no savings, and $1580.00 per monh rent and $200-$500 electricity bill every month. My husband makes good money but we just cant do it. My roadblock is that I can only find 3 bedroom apts that are within price range. We cannot move to another house because we wont save in utilities and we cant afford a huge deposit. I am ok with the fact that we have to give up stuff but we are stuck with the two older siblings sharing rooms. The 20 yearold is disabled and she has autism, she will never leave us and the 19 year old...well we are working on his motivation. Is it wrong for them to share ? Or should I give the 3 boys the master bedroom to share ? We have to make a change or we are never going to get out of debt and save money. Any Ideas ?
