Hey Bizkids! It’s Kaelon, writing from Los Angeles. Well moving out is upon me, and it’s amazing how many little steps go into getting your own place.  Not only did I need to pay the first months rent of $1025, but also a $1000 deposit for potential damages to the apartment over the year.  Then I called the electric company and set up electricity in my name, as well as the gas company.  The electric company needed a $200 deposit for services because I have very little credit and I have never had an account with them.  Also, I’ll need to pay for internet which is another $30 per month.  I’ve decided not to pay for cable to save money, and luckily the water and hot water are paid for, so that’s one thing I don’t need to worry about.  So just to move in, it cost me $2255.  Whew!  Quite a little chunk of change.  Hopefully I won’t run out of money before the first month!
