Default 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.

In which state do you live?

For the way I live, ~$1600 a month is winning. Granted, my life does suck so take that with a grain of salt.

Default Re: Living on your own expenses

I would imagine that cell phone, internet, heat, water, electric, car insurance, gas, and rent would be well above 500 a month. Groceries probably run you 50-70 a week if it's just you and you know how to cook. Either way, you should be able to support yourself on 1,600 a month. I do on just over 1,700 right now and my expenses must be higher than yours.

That is damn great income for a part time job.

Here's my monthly expenses w/ the blessings of Texas.

Rent - $216
Utilities - $50
Insurance - $75
Groceries - $50
Going out/eating out - $50-100
Gas - $200 (covered by tips at work)

Income - $800/month (not including tipis which cover all my gas anyway)

Beat that!!!!!

You may want to spend a month or two doing an experiment to see how it works for you.

Start by tracking all your expenses. Then for rent or other bills, come up with that number and put that aside and don't touch it. Also realize that you need come up with full rent on the 1st and pay your bills on maybe the 15th.

yes i live in phoenix. when i meant $500 a month it includes rent/neccesary utilities like electricity and water. phone bill is $100 additional. i may get internet which should be 40/month. couple of my friends share a house literally in the heart of arizona, couple blocks away from all cool bars/movie theater/chase/suns arena and lightrail. each one pays like $250/month for rent and utilities are shared amongst them. good deal considering downtown phoenix property iss **** rape even if its a piece of sht neighborhood.

anyhow, i found a studio apartment for $475 including utilities. downtown phoenix, nice interior, clean landscaping. i would prefer to live alone too, everytime i stop by at my friends house, one of them is a dirty slob that leaves all his food wrappers on living room table. you immediately know what this guy ate the past week
