If it wasn't for airbnb, I would not be making ends meet monthly. I live in a small studio apt in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. I have a full time job, but it's just not enough to cover all of my expenses and have any kind of life. I started to host my apt on airbnb. Since doing this, I can start to save a little money. Before, I would get my paycheck, pay my bills, and be left will about 50-100 to last me the two weeks until I got my next paycheck. It was a very stressful way to live. I still had to buy gas, grocerys etc with this. Airbnb has changed the way I am able to live in Los Angeles.
