I'm ready to move out, and I have a excellent job offer of 32-40 hours a week at $8.40 hourly. I am also looking at moving into a rental closer to this new job, with a roommate; the house is $400 a month, utilities included. I would also have food, gas, and other living expenses which constantly fluctuate. I also want to start a fund to purchase my own vehicle. My income now is down to my last paycheck this Monday. I have to pay off some debts, and should have $20.00 left over.
Unfortunately my parents haven't taught me much about personal finance so I am seeking advice elsewhere. I would like to know where I need to begin the process of stabilizing myself to move out. I want to know how to get my own medicaid, bank account, debit account and be able to spread my money to last decently. I am very bad at spending it while I have it and not having money when I need it. I want to be financially stable when I am living on my own but I like the luxuries of mall clothes, make-up, going out, etc and I want to be able to continue to enjoy these further into my life.
PLEASE, someone take me under your financial wing and guide me to a life without debt or too many financial issues.
