Hi, I just turned 18 and I live at home still. I'm wondering how much I should be budgeting for expenses. When I get a place of my own, how much should I save to make shure that I can afford the essincials for the house, such as the down payment, furniture, appliances, and such.
I also need to know what would be a good price for a place of my own. Should I get a room-mate for a while so that way I would know that between the both of us we would have enough money for rent and the bills. Having a room-mate seems like a good ideal. It would mean the rent is paid and I would still have exta money and not stress so much about my expenses.
