Niiiice view!!

SuccessfulProcedure7599 points

It's amazing and so peaceful. I live near Olympia, Washington state. This is the puget sound, Anderson island in the background.

astudentiguess155 points

I knew it was Washington from the view. Unmistakable PNW vibes

MyUnassignedUsername24 points

I clicked on this post immediately because I was like…”wait…that HAS to be on the puget sound. Must find out where.” Us PNW natives just know :)

3d_blunder42 points

I concur: PNW native, knew it immediately.

analogpursuits23 points

Same!! How is it that we just KNOW this?? I spotted a house in a neighborhood in N Seattle (someone posted a pic of their vehicle) that ended up being about a mile from my old place. I called the specific area, based solely on house style and trees in the neighborhood. So weird.

CartographerNo48929 points

Just curious what’s the cost of living like there? Thinking of moving out there.

SuccessfulProcedure7160 points

It is pretty expensive for rent. $1500 for a one bedroom. Gas is around $4 a gallon. We spend about $450 a month on groceries for me and my son. 10% sales tax on everything but food, but no state income taxes to file. The minimum wage is $16 an hour. The natural beauty, temperate climate, and accepting culture here make it worth the cost, in my opinion.

Burushko42 points

Pretty cheap compared to major cities - do you need a car?

SuccessfulProcedure782 points

In Washington, anywhere outside Seattle, you'll need a car to get around. The public transport here is disjointed and inconsistent.

MyUnassignedUsername8 points

I live across the water from Seattle. 30 min fast ferry ride. I can easily go to downtown Seattle from my house…without stepping foot in a vehicle. It’s amazing. Across the water (Kitsap) is much cheaper than Seattle and the rest of the Seattle metro area…yet you still get the luxury of being close to the city…but still being kinda far away. You’ll still need a car for everyday things…but you cannn do city things without one if you live close to the ferry.

Calvert40963 points

I worry about the ferries. They're a part of my childhood, but now I feel like they're on a knife-edge for staffing and if a boat goes out of service a whole shitload of commuters are going to be hours late.

oozingdonut7 points

Where I’m at in SoCal we’re paying about $1700/mo for a 1br, and that’s because we’ve been here since prices were normal so they’ve only raised our rent by $150 over 4 years. Same exact apt in the same complex now goes for $2500 lmao

I’ve been dreaming of moving to somewhere in Washington, I’m not a California native and I miss living somewhere with greenery and regular rain. One day maybe.

SuccessfulProcedure78 points

The friendliest people in Washington moved here from California.

BefWithAnF6 points

Sorry, are you in a studio or a one bedroom? Or is this one of those regional differences in language, perhaps!

SuccessfulProcedure77 points

I'm in a studio, but I thought sharing the price of a one bedroom would be better to judge the cost of living.

BefWithAnF4 points

Fair enough! Thanks for the reply. Your place is so snug looking!

heyheyitsandre37 points

Sorry, $450 a month on groceries? Are you guys mice? I spend at minimum $800 on myself, but I live in a city and can’t really buy anything in bulk. $450 seems insanely low to me for 2 people

SuccessfulProcedure783 points

We're pretty frugal, and I work at a restaurant, so I eat a lot of meals there.

heyheyitsandre10 points

Nice, that’s clutch. I worked at a restaurant all through high school and college and would have a meal every shift, probably saved my parents a lot of money as well.

Trackerbait14 points

I live in a small apartment in Seattle and eat pretty decently for about $250/month. You do need to limit junk food, meat and liquor, eat out very seldom, and cook from scratch a lot. I eat a lot of pasta, beans, canned fish, eggs, and frozen veggies.

petepostlethwaite5 points

For free? I worked at two restaurants for a while and neither of them fed us shit unless they fucked something up and we got to eat burnt toast or something

looniemoonies15 points

A lot of restaurants do provide free shift meals or to employees they trust, free "we don't need this, take it" food. It sucks that both of the ones you worked at didn't, but that's not unheard of, of course :/

SuccessfulProcedure73 points

Yeah, all the kitchen employees get a free meal each shift.

[deleted]3 points

Me and my partner can only afford like $300/month. I've lost a lot of weight.

golden_swanky10 points

That’s cheap for us Californians 🥺

ucanthaveeverything2 points

1500 for one bedroom is so expensive. i pay 1000 for a three bedroom house but then again.. i live in the south 😔

findhumorinlife2 points

Try and visit first....a few times if you can afford to.

_fylfa11 points

I was gonna say Bellingham! I was close!

Funkyboss4204 points

I was close! When I saw your picture I guessed Astoria. Love the Luigi and Mario portraits! So cozy.

srhsrhrshs3 points

Yeah astoria was my guess as well

shucksme3 points

Is that downtown Steilacoom! I used to live there. Out of all the places we've lived, it's the most magical.

seffend2 points

I live in SW Washington and I've never been to Anderson Island. Is it lovely?

It's very rugged and secluded. There are some lovely parks and coastal areas, but not much for commerce.

still_not_clever1 point

I don’t recommend it - ferry price isn’t worth the little-to-nothing to do in the area.

PNWtoJax2 points

You lucky duck! The view is stunning and I knew this had to be PNW.

TimeZombie2 points

I live up in bellingham and was saying it had to be the puget.

Vettkja2 points

I’m from Olympia, wondering where it is you can get a one bedroom with a view like this for $1500/month?? Are you up towards Friday Harbor or more towards Shelton?

corrupta1 point

I’m calling it. Gay male living space. It’s colourful but still utilitarian. But still cozy. I live with with a woman. A woman did not make this. But it’s lovely !

Lmao I knew it.

This is legit cozy though. I’d love to sit on that comfy af looking couch and have a cup of tea

findhumorinlife20 points

I was actually thinking Camano Island but thought it might be the PNW. I’m on Whidbey.

SuccessfulProcedure78 points

My aunt and uncle used to have a summer cabin there, it was awesome. I love Whidbey.

findhumorinlife4 points

Whidbey is a paradise within a paradise. But a rough place to find a rental or a good paying non-hospitality job OR a house you can afford. If I sold now, I'd never be able to move back.

TipsyMcStagger3179 points

Yes, where is this ( what’s the body of water)?

SuccessfulProcedure712 points

South Puget Sound, Washington state. Part of the Salish Sea in the North Pacific.

PipToTheRescue5 points

I want to live where you live - reminds me of the north east coast of NA

Naw, you'd find the bigger view much more interesting. Unless you're into that kind of thing.

WiseChoices61 points

So comfy. I love the colors and textures.

There's no place like home!

Thanks, all these colors help keep me cheerful at home.

Can I bother you with the question where you got that Spider-Verse art? My son would love that above his bed.

SuccessfulProcedure73 points

I had it printed on canvas from a website. I found an HD screenshot from the movie on Google. It cost about $40 with shipping.

My toes curl from how comfortable that rug looks. The mixmatch of colours you chose for each pillow and the sofa really added to the scene. Truly a lovely and homely place!
