I Moved to Saint Paul from Long Island 9 years ago as a single mom with my son who was 9 years old at that time.Found a place and job what I keep during 9 years. Pretty stable here .

My son is now 18 and we live together 9 years. He is moving to Saint Cloud state university in 2 weeks and he will live on campus .

I am renting 1-bedroom apartment here in Saint Paul in a nice area for 9 years ..but no remodeling and 525sq.feet now cost me 800$ plus water and heat.

Was keeping this place only for my son because of great schools around.

Don't need it now and since we were 3 times in Saint Cloud to visit his school I saw that places there new and rent is much cheaper.

Debating now if I should move.

Also I am Ukrainian and I do pretty simple job here , cashier and customer service in whole food store. It was stable and good . 9 years doing the same type of work. Not sure if I can find something similar in Saint Cloud.


Need some suggestions please.

Congrats on getting your son off to college. I am sure it is not easy letting go. My daughter is 9 years old and i can''t imagine her all grown up. She is already growing too fast for me.

As I understand Whole Foods pays pretty well and has good benefits? So for a similar cashier/customer service job it may be difficult to find similar pay and benefits in St. Cloud. But like you said housing is cheaper.

Maybe now that your son has moved out, financially it might be the best decision to keep your current job but find cheaper housing (maybe in the suburbs?). I don't know what the job market is like in St. Cloud, though.

Yes, job is good and stable with helpful benefits... But the rent price with a small storage and no garage is killing me now .
