What costs do I need to calculate to live on my own?
I am 20 years old and looking to move out of my parents house for the first time. I will not be able to receive parents help when looking for aparments and calculating the costs I need. So what am I looking for? I need to know how much rent costs, utilities, I pay my own car insurance and gas, I also need to know how much health bills are, groceries, what the heck am I looking for and how can I find the information out?

you could move into an apartment with a close friend and usually you able to guide eachother through. Rentals often come up in newspapers or tv so dont hesitate to check that out. First, a good job is important so find an apartment around that range and everyday items shouldnt matter much. you'll adjust.
