How realistic would it be for my friend and I to move out together?

My friend and I really would like to move out together. We want to move sometime early next year. We don'-t think we can afford it. Right now, I believe she works 40-45 hours a week at 6.50/hour. I don'-t have a job right now, but I am getting on at a restaurant making 2.13/hour plus tips. We'-re both going to be full-time college students. She doesn'-t own a car. My insurance is paid for. She doesn'-t have credit, I have okay credit. We want to move to a place in Gallatin or Hendersonville, Tennessee.Two young ladies working at or slightly above minimum wage.Is it possible for us to move out?

Not in California... LOL Rent alone is $800-$2000 a month in a cheap place like Fresno and like $3500+++ in places like Santa Cruz.But since you are not in California.... try this:First, do research. Find apartments you might move into and get an idea of rent. Ask about average utilities costs or ask friends what they pay who live in apartments around you. How much is phone and gas? How much will you commute? What do you spend on clothes? What will laundry cost you?Then after all your research, make an Excel spreadsheet listing all possible expenses such as rent, food, gas, auto payments, insurance, auto repairs, clothes, household items such as soap, cleaning supplies, makeup, etc... include utilities, misc expenses such as eating out, dating, social life... then total and compare to your income AFTER taxes. Try to have at least money extra for things that you don't plan on. Don't count on future income such as raises, overtime that might end.... then with all the numbers in front of you, decide if moving out makes sense or not. --))Source(s):http://www.stretcher.com/stories/980514c…http://www.asb.co.nz/story1371.asphttp://www.onmyown.com/downloads/MovingO…

Work on your education first.At just above minimum wage, it will be almost impossible for you to work that much, go to school full time, and keep your grades up.Living on campus was one of the best experiences of my life...you miss out on so much when you live off-campus and are not in the university "loop".

You maybe best off staying where you are at and putting your education first. It is hard to work full time and go to school (can be done, just have to be devoted or one or the other will suffer) How about living on campus or looking for roomates. It will take ALL your incomes to pay the bills and will not leave any extra money for recreational or personal things to be bought...you may want to think this one through!! Good Luck

I would think about it for a while.You can rune a good friend ship if something goes wrong.Unless it is a male i would think about it also.No Two woman can live under the same roof for long unless there is a real strong bond of friendship.Just be smart and take time to think it over.Source(s):I've been there at one time .

maybe if you move into a household where you share the rent with a few other people. you could try to find a large room that you both share. that way, you both can afford rent and eat at the same time.Source(s):but it is going to be tough...as long as you aren't into a high-maintenance lifestyle, it should work out.
