The Question Club
So today I did something I've stupidly never done before: formally budgetted myself. I can't work (I'm in a demanding program at school) so I have to make what money I have left go a long way. After all my living expenses, and some upcoming expenses that I know about, I've figured out that I have $225 a month to spend on things.|
EDIT: By living expenses, I mean pretty much everything I pay for regularily. Rent, utilities, cable and internet, food, phone bill. I live downtown so I almost never need transportation money (I've taken the bus maybe 10 times total in 6 months). I have no insurance to pay for. And when I say spending money, I mean unforseen things that may crop up, and "fun" money.
Because I've never actually given myself an exact figure for "you can spend x amount per month" I have no idea how much that is, in terms of spending money. So I'm looking for your personal opinions. I understand that everyone is different and depending on your situation and yadda yadda yadda, but I just want your opinion.
My spending money is $225 a month. Is that alot?
Even for a poor indebted student, that's peanuts. Increase your cashflow someway, somehow
You'll have to cutback on things, but it can be done
If you watch your money you can live very comfortably off that
You kidding? That's plenty!
Something else that I'll comment about.
