The variables here are too many to say with certainty. It's best to call your local utility companies (gas, electric & cable/satellite providers). When you call, have the address or adresses you are looking at and ask them the average monthly bill rates, required deposit amounts, and if they can be fixed rates per month or strictly according to usage. This primarilly applies to electric & gas. Ask for the highest & lowest usage costs/month over the last 12 months, and if you can get 'averaged billing' to level out your bills to an expected amt/mo. Tv providers offer packages normally at fixed monthly rates, as do most internet providers. Create a budget beginning with your net pay per month. Subtract rent, utilities, tv, internet (if applicable), phone/cell service, gasoline, vehicle insurance, and food. Try to 'stash' 15-25% of your earnings into a savings account for emergencies. A flat tire or car repairs, unexpected illness or doctor bills, and even time off of work can ruin a budget... so plan for these things. Sometimes taxes can be a hardship too.. and that's around the corner. Generally speaking, if you have first & last month's rent, a deposit, and another $800 bucks or so, you can get it all set up... not counting groceries, furniture, or other things one might need... of course. The benchmark amount in the bank my son had to have to move out on his own was $2K. This took care of rent, utilities, and deposits... and bought some groceries for the pantry & freezer to live on his first couple months. Needless to say, he still had much to buy like towels, dishes, pots & pans, furniture, and a good tv & such. He put furniture on layaway before moving out, and made the final payment a week before moving.. and set up his delivery date to his apartment. He watched the sales ads for other household goods like dishes & pots & pans, towels, sheets, blankets, and a vacuum cleaner... which he bought and stored in our garage until he moved. With proper planning, you can move in and be all set up in about a day or two... including groceries. Hope this was helpful.. good luck!
