Study v moving house

Ah! My housemate has decided to move out! I’ve also taken the risky decision to move to cheaper digs to enable me to save money for the MBA. So good bye, the rented house I’ve lived in for two years.

Downside of being sensible I now have to go through the process of moving out and finding some place cheaper I want to live. As I live in London I should have a fair amount of choice as long as I’m willing to be flexible in area and what I want in a house. I’ve outlined my essentials below:
Location allows me to get to work, hockey and church without too much fuss.
There a dishwasher in the house. I hate washing dishes and I’ve found this machine important for good housemate relations
My bedroom not pokey. I have too much stuff for a small bedroom.

To help with saving I would love a place where the bills are all inclusive.

Downside, the property market even for spare rooms in shared housing goes fast specially at the price bracket I’m looking at. So there a risk I may be in between houses in November.

I was about to book the GMAT test for end of October, this no longer seems like such a good idea as it likely I will be moving house then. So that means I will have to push the exam date back to November.

One thing I still haven’t figured out yet is how to balance study and moving house and managing my stress levels. Anyone have any suggestions?
