I recommend that you move in with bballer and make sure you do the following things to save some money:

1) use his toothbrush to brush your teeth so you don't have to buy one
2) make sure you change once every week to avoid the cost of doing laundry
3) pretend to be sick all the time and use your roommates tissue to fap in

That sucks dude. I would resent the Hell out of my parents if they gave me the boot without giving them a valid reason (like me ****ing up). Did you do anything to warrant that reaction?

Every thing I buy, food-wise, for the week comes from Trader Joes, Sams and the local farmers market. Ususally around $100/week for a family of 3 (+2 pets) excluding alcohol.

That's a nice website. I've been doing a lot of budgeting on paper, but it's nice to see it visually. Thanks. Repped.
Hmmm Can I trust it though? It's asking for my username and password to my bank acc.

The place I'm renting is $400 utilities included. I'm going to skip out on internet, cable, and a cell phone(maybe) and use school internet for a couple months until I have a steady source of income.. Am I being too cautious? It's my first time being completely independent and I'm worried. Insurance will totally **** me over unless I reconsider a place closer to school.
Oh and any ideas for grocery shopping that will be nutritious and still be cheap?


you should vote for this guy

You can deliver pizza. You make pretty good money, most places will reimburse for gas, and the hours are very short.
