Okay.. so that expense is gone come 21 days from now.
Min wages in your state is 7.40, so that means you make roughly 740 a month before they take off any government crap on a 25 hour a week estimate. -- If its anywhere like here, on a part timer, my 25 hour a week job only takes 45 dollars. so id say 695 should be what you should have in your pocket a month from working 25 hours. which is true, not enough to live on, however, if you picked up a second job on the weekends, you may just be able to pull it off.
you could find a weekend job that would give you 14-16 hours. And then work your usual part time 25 hour shifts during the week.
Which is kind of what im doing right now.
im working two jobs and going at a 45 hours a week. 20 hours from Rona, 25 hours from my cleaning job.
im paying 200 to my visa, 560 for my rent, 200-250 for food, 170 for my utilities, 60 for my transportation, 100 for my furniture.. etc..
what i would do is go through the paper or internet and find a decent bachelor or 1 bedroom and then plan on what kind of food you would want to eat when you live alone and just call around to companies and see if they will tell you an average of the costs of things you plan to have when you move. I just stuck with internet as apposed to TV cause you can watch TV on the computer anyway. and just see what it all totals and see if you can just tightly get by.
