Living on your own expenses
I'm considering moving on my own or with a roomate. I work part time because of school but the money is steady. whats a good figure you can get by on if you assume rent/utilities to be ~500 a month? my biggest expense right now has to be going out on weekends...which i can defnitely cut down on. food also, i eat out almost everyday but if i'm going to budget, i can shop for groceries and real food. i would also save money on gas if i move close to school or where i mostly hang out. i usually spend $50+ every week on gas because i drive alot since my home is 30 mins away from school.
monthly income ~$1600.
