Ok, I am about to get sick!! Rent is due at the latest .T.O.D.A.Y!! And I should have had $180 deposeted on my chash aid card by this morning at midnight (the 3rd) and when I went to the bank to get the money so I can pay our rent (we are $76 short till I get my money) and all that I had was 21 cents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the heck is going on??? With out that money we are going to be screwed by tonight!!! I called my bf at work and told him the money wasn't there, and he didn't seem bothered, he just said wait till later in the morning and see if its there. But I always get my cash out at midnight!! O.M.G what are we going to do if we dont' have the money????? I hate this sooo much!!! I wish it were august already!! We would have plenty of money by now!
I am so sorry. I really can't tell oyu what you can do now, but I can give you this budget outline. If you try and work it out, the first few moths you may have nothing left in hand, but a few months down the road you should have some savings, ya know for a rainy day. And this is just an outline so you'll have to tweek it a little to fit your life:
25 to 30% on housing
8 to 15% on food
5 to 7% on health care
7 to 9% on insurance/pensions
6 to 8% on clothing
5 to 9% on entertainment
6 to 10% for general savings
62 to 88% total spent
of course, these percentages will vary depending on your individual needs, but this is a general guideline.
Thanks, the money finally came in and we were able to get the rent paid!! Woohoo!!! But now our new room mate is complaining that we are leaving our cats for 2 weeks while we go to mi. They will have food/water, but he is giving us a hard time, so now I am despritly looking for someone who can watch our cats for us. this is soooo annoying!!! I hate all this stress.
