Speaking of making things work, I was doing some calculating and I found it totally insane that a SINGLE person needs an average of $1600 a month to live. That calculation includes; car note(if you don't have a car note then you still have upkeep expenses), insurance, car maintenance, rent, utilities, cable( I could live without cable but that's minus $35 for basic cable), Internet(which I do need for school so it is a necessity for me), groceries( and I'm like the queen of grocery shoppin because I can stretch a dollar; hello Kroger! LOL!), personal hygiene needs, if you have a pet then you include your pet's needs in there as well. I can't imagine if I had a kid or anyone else to take care of because just being single hits you in the wallet. All these are needs not wants and don't include gettin your hair or nails did or even paying for the gym. Most apartments have a free gym so that's an unneeded expense as well.
Well just thought I'd update on how I've been over the past few weeks and that things are definitely looking up!
