TQC, how do you budget yourself? I just got my first apartment, and my money situation is so stressful. Any advice would be wonderful!

I know money has been tight for many people, but I just can't seen to ever have enough to pay bills. I've been searching for a job for a few months now, and have sent out over 200 resumes easily. I went to two interviews, but they both ended up just promoting people within the company. I'm so stressed out lately, and its been giving me headaches. I was kicked out of my parents house under really upsetting circumstances (an addiction they both have has apparently become more important than me and their grandson), so I used all the money I had saved for this apartment. I feel so stuck right now. I'm doing this all alone (I don't get child support for my son), have no family here since they live in another state, and just don't know what to do anymore. I've started saving money as much as possible by no going out to eat, or fast food. I don't go to the store anymore aside for food really. I've been shopping thrift stores and yard sales, but it still doesn't seem to be enough! I don't have internet/cable at my house, so that is one less bill :)I've also been selling tons of my items through Craigslist to make some cash. Its my first time out on my own, and I'd love to know from people who have been in this situation ways they cut corners! Thanks!
