Some of the changes I'd been dealing with recently are coming to fruition. It looks like I will indeed be moving out in December (my choice due to some personal events). I've only just started the apartment hunt, but as you all know, my moving fund isn't really as established as I'd like. There is 300 in there which should cover the deposit or amenity fee at most places I'm looking at. With the rent and the remaining upfront costs, I am guessing I'm going to need about 2400 by the beginning of December. Looking at the numbers, I can wedge out 1850 from my regular paychecks which leaves me with finding another 250. Hopefully, I can find a place under that amount, but if not, I need to be prepared. I plan to start selling stuff. I also have $195 cash for the month for gas, groceries, and miscellaneous. I'm hoping to keep that as low as possible to be able to use some of that money. (The bonus is eating the pantry stuff I have on hand, so I won't have to move it!!) With such a tight timeline, I most likely won't be able to afford the pet deposit and extra pet rent up front, so I'll have to wait another month or two to bring my dog up to live with me, but I am kind of excited to be starting out on my own.
Tough November Ahead
