    lets say your rent is 600. cable 60. groceries by yourself for a month is prollie 300. utilities (if you can keep them down and save) will prollie round about 300. gas depends on how much you travel and with high gas prices it'll be hard to determine without knowing how much you travel or where you live. so that rounds to about $1260. lets juss say $1400 a month..you know..give yourself some spending money. that's without calculating gas though. i take it this will be your first time out on your own =) congrats. if you work full time (40hrs a week) at at least $10/hr, you'll have $1600/month before tax. after tax, you should be able to survive. so around there
