Is this news to anyone? Now if it had been cheaper to live in a hotel than an apartment, that would be news AND I'd love it!

Portland, OR

Last time we moved, about 8 years ago, we used a hotel for four days, then switched to an apartment for two months while finding the home and then closing the deal. The apartment was MUCH more economical. Even though unfurnished, we bought pads and sheets to sleep on (and which we still have for unexpectedly large numbers of guests), and sort of camped out indoors.

I was passing the extended stay motel on Winchester the other day and noticed it's $275 per week. That's my rent and Comcast bill. When I figure utilities I could live in the extended stay place cheaper. I might consider it if I didn't mind living in a very small place, giving up all my possessions and my cat!

I wonder what is cheaper; to make dinner or go to a fancy restaurant? to buy a tux or rent a tux? to go skiing at a resort or sledding in the backyard?
