Finally moving out.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by bryan bailey, Mar 11, 2006.

  1. April first I'll finally be out of my parents houses and I'll be on my own with a couple friends. So far I'm stoked for it, but unfortunately due to a rough Febuary I'm near broke and need 900 bucks by the first of April.

    So, any suggestions as to how I can do it? I'm trying to sell my Geddy J for 600 and then my regular wage would cover the rest and my tax return that'll show up mid April will level me off nicely. So if I sell this bass I think I'll be alright, but if I can't sell it I don't know what I'm gonna do.

    Any helpful hints?

    Good luck getting your money, but just know that the expenses don't go away and will probably be a lot more than you're used it. Ask me how I know. ;)
  4. I'm pretty close to looking for another job. But this first payment is a boot in the derriere.

    Why do you need such a big initial investment? I'm assuming it's the security deposit and first months rent, but the deposit isn't usually more than $300. Considering you'll be splitting the deposit and the rent between a couple of guys, I guess I'm just not seeing why you need $900.

    Put off the moving out until you have more money in the bank. Moving out broke is never a good idea.

    From what I noticed, is that most places require first and last months rent plus a security deposit which is around the amount of rent for one month. My apartment, which has rent of $325 a month, had a $975 deposit. For this area, $325 a month for a studio is quite cheap. As most studios around here are at least $500 a month.
  10. Alright, according to my roomates who have met the landlord there, there stands to be a good chance that he'll take it easy on me and pay last rent next month when I have money.

    That and the other 4 roomates have all said they will help in any way they can.

    So I should be all set. I also hope I can do this without being a huge burden on four other people and still keep my Geddy.

    Only time will tell...

    Uh-huh. It won't be charity. They'll want it back someday. Real quick way to ruin friendships is to move in with your buddies, and be bumming money for rent, the phone bill, groceries, etc. Everyone has their breaking point on loaning money. Same goes for the landlord. He'll be easy on you to get you in the place. He's going to want that money. If you don't have it right now, what makes you think you can save it up while you try to maintain the increasing bills you are going to accumulate on your own?

    I'm tellin' ya bro, this just sounds bad. Hopefully I am wrong.

  13. This situation is only a problem for this month. After I get my taxes back I'll be all set.

    I make enough to cover the rent, utilities, some food and my car. Its just right now I don't have enough for first/last rent, damage deposit and a car payment. But like I said, once my taxes come back I'll be a-ok.
