Default Got apartment cost

But my medical just changed cost wise. So they are redoing it. With my new medical costs more than a 200 dollar change. The apartment is 106 more than I can afford at this moment and 35 less than my prior budget.

Thankfully with the change they said they would redo it because it's a consistant debt. So it looks like I'll be moving. They'll get it to where I can manipulate the budget.

My cell phone bill goes down in Aug when my brother adds me to his plan buy over 50 bucks. I renegotiated my payment to SS it's a longer duration but it was something I could manipulate. I tweaked my payments to mom and brother. Couple other tweaks could be made but that's bare bone living than. Give up ww, give up keranique both are for the betterment of me. But cost me 100 a month.

Well I insist on moving, just going to have to buck up until people are paid off.

It's about where I was hoping it would be. 200 more than I pay mom for rent. Though it will be tight I can afford it. I'm stressing about living alone more than cost now.

Are there things you can forgo or do without? Habits you can try to curb?

When I was on assistance and a very tight budget I learned to visit the library and took up reading instead of paying for television. The library too is a great source of free wi-fi. I gave up a great deal of snacks and treats - they aren't healthy anyway and I actually lost some weight.

When it came to entertainment, I looked for that which was free - like galleries and museums, conservatories, and free festivals (music, art and theatre in the park, etc). I am able to find at least one free function a week in my community. It just takes a little looking and researching. Your community free weekly paper will list these things off as well as the local tourism website.

There are many ways you can reduce your budget. I stress again curbing habits and developing new healthier free ones. I managed to reduce my own budget by that $200 magic mark you are looking for.
