We're officially poor

We're now officially poor :)

At least, we qualify for a "§5-Schein", which lets us get into certain kinds of subsidised or low-cost housing. (We're a bit over the income limit, but apparently you can be above the limit by up to a certain percentage, and we were under that higher limit.)

This means that we might be moving next year, since friends of ours are considering moving out of their place (depends on whether he find a job), and we could save around €175 (US$ 230/UK£ 120/CA$ 260/AU$ 290/MT£ 75) a month by moving there, which is significant. It even convinced me, who had asked Stella not to mention moving house for the next several years after just having done so this past March.
