Yesterday was payday. I worked my typical 80 hours in the two weeks with about 8 hours of overtime. After taxes (over $200 worth of deductions!), I only got a little under $650.
The way it breaks down...
- Rent: $150
- Car payment: $270
- Miscellaneous debt: $60
- Miscellaneous bills (bank deposit): $100
- Internet: $40
- Total: $580
Not to mention my car needs gas, I need new shoes for work, and I need to eat.
How am I suppose to live like this? I'm expected to move out, but it'd be impossible. Yes, I've bought a couple "toys" from the last couple paychecks, but I've budgeted for them and been able to easily get by even after spending the money on them.
I think I need to put out my resume a few places, because I can't make it on this little bit of money, not with the cost of living like it is.
