Re: Moving to Anchorage!
Oh, how lucky of you!!! I'm a single mom also, and want to move back up there so badly, mind if I join y'all?? kidding (mostly).
When I lived there I was a full time, live-in nanny, so I didn't have to worry about housing or cars, but I did get to know the area a bit.
Places around Forest Park dr and Northern Lights Blvd (north of n. lights, NOT south) are pretty decent, mostly houses...but some condos and 'mother-in-law' sort of places.
A few areas of downtown are nice; your best bet is probably go around a bit and see what looks appealing to you
In my honest opinion, living in alaska is TOTALLY worth being frugal/barely making it financially.
Plus, who knows, maybe you'll find a rich, buff mountain man! haha. As the saying goes: 'the odds are good, but the goods are odd'!!!
