    Omg 😳 I couldn’t do this I have a entire room that is my closet and makeup room I couldn’t live in a matchbox !!! I rent out rooms in my home for $500-700 on size just cause I like a big full house.. I don’t mind renting to young people since my kids are grown & it’s safer & easier not to be alone..
