Need somewhere to stay temporarily.
I put this off for as long as possible because I really thought I could find a place in time, and asking for help just...isn't something I find easy to do. I've been staying at Drage and Forzii's longer than expected, and I have only a few days to be moved out to make room for someone else. I have a job and nearly $1,100 saved, so I've been looking for an apartment near downtown Pittsburgh with an initial payment (rent + deposit) within that limit. I'll be getting paid again on Friday, so my apartment budget (and my
options) will be larger this weekend, but Friday also happens to be my
deadline for moving out. Unfortunately, every time I try to get in contact with the owner of a promising apartment, they either don't respond, push back the availability, or announce that they've rented it to someone else. Two have scheduled showings to let me see the apartment, then canceled at the last minute. So basically, I'm looking for a place to temporarily store my stuff and crash while I find an apartment. I'm waiting on two calls and an email from apartment owners right now, so hopefully this won't end up being necessary anyway, but I need to be prepared if my bad luck keeps up.
Update: Tomorrow is my last day to move my stuff, and my last hope of getting an apartment before the deadline was crushed today. I'm renting a storage unit and storing my stuff tomorrow. I still need a place to store myself until I find an apartment. Shouldn't be long, but I'll gladly pay for the space I take up. If anyone has a couch I can crash on for a while or space for a mattress on the floor, I would really appreciate not having to find a homeless shelter.
