According to a report by USA Today, Bill, a financially mindful individual, shared his unique approach to saving on rent during his master’s degree at Berkeley University.
Recognizing the exorbitant rental prices in San Francisco compared to his more affordable living situation in Los Angeles, he decided to take flights three times a week instead.
