it is quite easy to live on 500 a week here regardless of what area.

I nearly choked on my cornflakes this morning reading that. Are you living on a council estate or something? Down my way that doesn't even pay for half the monthly rent for a three room flat. OK, I could get on my bike and move elsewhere, but you did say 'regardless of what area'. :p

And im still paying the finance on my Focus ST. Im a bit of a party animal, and I do enjoy living it up on Edinburghs George street. So I never really had any savings


No wonder you have no savings if you spend all your money in the pretentious bars up in George Street.

Give me a real pint along Rose Street or the Grassmarket any day!

Yes because saying someone can live on 500 a week must mean you live on a council estate. Rolling Eyes

Where about do you live? And if I find a property in that area where someone on 500 a week can live, will you give me all your stuff in game?Very Happy

I can flutter away 100 million isk if you find me a nice place to live that isn't above a shop. You can get started here.

Dang, one of these places is basically a 20" long closet, and for 500 pounds a month? Is Chislehurst, Kent a fancy codeword for downtown London?

I would highly consider buying a property or leasing to own if crap is that expensive.

Found one here

900 per calender month, if you earn 500 a week that would leave you with 1100 to live on.

Does not appear to be above a shop either.Smile

I pay just under 500/quarter for my house-share in Durham. It's not a terribly nice neighbourhood and there's a pub right across the road, but I can put up with it.

So I did a conversion from pound to USD and for 500 (I too am stupid with the symbol thing) I came up with $748 USD. I pay less for a 3 bedroom/2 bath house on acreage. That's some pretty crazy rates for flats over there.

I should have been more picky about the quality, but 100m will be winging it's way over to you soon :p

Sorry to hear about your stroke of bad luck there Maxivo. Labor is kinda on the downturn due to it being cheap to find in other countries, hence the massive outsourcing by everyone. Its like that all over the world except for India and China these days.

If you do go back to school be sure to research what you want to get into first. White collar jobs are also being affected by the economy. Supervisors and C"insert two letters of your choice here" 's are also getting laid off. Unlike the bank CEO's etc, middle line and small line businesses don't have golden parachutes to give out.

Standard of living costs. California despite being a sleaze-hole has some ungodly prices for apartments while Texas has some darn nice apartments for half the costs. Northwestern states are supposed to be even cheaper.

Well i live in a peasants area you could live like a king on a grand a week. I live in a hellhole called mexborough, in south yorkshire, you can rent a 2 bedroom terraced house for 300 a month however your neighbours will most likely be unemployed chavs that sell drugs and make a lot of noise and anti social behaviour.
