    For me: electric and gas included in rent

    Regular phone and DSL, around 80/month (I could get it lower
    but I'm lazy). Cellular phone (low use, prepaid) 15/month.

    No cable. No TV in fact.

    Car insurance and parking: ouch, don't want to think about it. Gas, ouch again, and getting worse.

    The rest goes to food, computers, and flashlights [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I pay around $15 a month for water and about $35 for electric in the summer(no air conditioning) my phone and dsl is around $50 per month, my call phone is $40 a month unless I talk too much. don't forget insurance for your residence. some condos have garbage pick up in with the condo fees but check to be sure.

    Are you renting this place Raggie? I'm wondering why you would be responsible for the property taxes in addition to the rent.

    All utilities offer low-income discounts. Be sure to call them and apply. You can save as much as 25% for your water & power, natural gas and phone. In larger cities, like Los Angeles, one city agency can hook you up with discounts for all of your utilities.

    As a matter of fact, your state may have a low-income program for property taxes. Do some checking.

    Basic sbc local phone service with sbc dsl runs me about 44 a month for the 2 combined.
    If you are renting, there is no property tax to worry about. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    What you will likely be worring about will be;
    The rent ($100-1000 depending on what you want to rent)

    Electric/gas (under 100 a month typically for 600-800 square feet.)

    Water and sewer (20-25 a month.)

    Phone service with dsl internet (45-50 a month)

    Renters's insurance (under 200 a year, even with your Lionheart in there.)

    Flashlights (here's the big one right here [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] )

    Food (200, or so a month) maybe less with low income assistance from food stamps if available.

    This list is just for starters, but I hope it helps.

    I forgot to add renters insurance, 313 a year, 135 a month for paratransit fare for two trips a day and 100 a year for my trac prepaid cell phone w/300 minutes.

    My ac can run my bill up to 60 bucks a month, but I found I can save that by cutting it off when not around and turn it on when I am here. Saves a lot and I still get cool. Most days my apartment with the ac off is still cooler than outside.

    raggie, I am happy you are asking about this. This is what I have been trying to warn you about ever since you started saying you were going to buy a place to live.

    Get on the phone with the realestate taxing agency in your state and county. They can tell you for sure what the previous owner had to pay for taxes.

    Call lots of insurance agents, and get "quotes". Compare cost, but also compare features of the policy. There is a thing called a "deductible". That is the amount that you will have to pay if you have a claim. The lower the deductible - the HIGHER the premium.

    Chuck
