Are you moving somewhere? Finding a decent home/PG to stay is tough? Relying on PG? Is it a wise choice?   Paying guest accommodation is broken. Even if you want to pay more it’s not possible to find decent accommodation with all the necessities. The only alternative is staying with friends which comes with its own problems. What if someone leaves? Who will buy fridge, sofa, TV, washing machine and how to share its cost? Who will pay bills? How to keep track of expenses? Too many things to take care.
