Just out of curiosity, how old is everyone here? What is your living arrangement? What are your monthly expenses as far as rent, food, gas, other living expenses? I am 21 and used to share an apartment with my friend. When my job company went under I was unemployed and had to move home. Now I am considering moving back out wig the same roommate and possibly another friend. I have about 6500 in the bank. I have a job again which pays decently. 9 something an hour. I'll be attending school full time so I won't be able to work full time. Do you think It is a wise financial decision to move back out? I have 2 vehicles that I pay insurance on every 6 months as well. What kind of financial cushion do you have? How do you budget your expenses?
