The Russian guy’s apartment, which costs $100 for a month.

All of us wish to live in our places. We all love to live in a comfortable place where we have enough space to live freely. Some people love to choose an apartment in a city to live in, but some people like to live in cabins in quiet woods. No matter what place you decide to reside in, you can live happily as long as you are comfortable in that place.

You have to pay attention to your cost/rent if you plan to choose a residence. If you wish to live in an area which is in a metropolis, it might be expensive. But some people are fortunate to find places to reside for a low cost, even in the country towns and trendy areas.

Other than that, monthly his water bill costs $2, and the electricity bill costs $8. For a one-person, garbage removal cost is $2.
