now that i have a steady job with lots of work for the future and an amazing boss to work for.
im able to save money for schooling and in the next year or 2. i could take a course i would like to take. which is HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and AirConditioning) tech.

I already have a year into Automotive Braking and Electrical but i found that the thought of basically ripping people off for work that costs little in parts etc kinda doesn't sit well with me.

I am pretty dead set on becoming a police officer in some sort or other. Im REALLY leaning towards being a Tribal police officer as i know the local Reservation (of which im on nearly once a week to visit friends) needs more officers and they are hesitant of hiring non native people due to the thought of them not being respected the same as a native officer. The thought process is sound when you think about it a little and i have to agree.

Congrats! When I moved out of my parents house and started to provide for myself, I was proud. I am sure you feel the same as it is very rewarding. Its nice to come home after a long day at work to see the fruits of your labor. Keep up the hard work and stick with the plan you have. I was 19 when I moved out, I am now 21. Again, Congrats and Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

Very cool. Just be careful to only spend money you already have( unless for property mortgage). If you have a data plan on your phone, babysit craigslist free section and the furniture will take care of itself. No reason to buy new, if you hookup with a woman at some point, she will make you replace it anyway. I had a rocker glider that was given to me (divorce deal) worth $550 that I had to give away. The people that got it were furnishing their house from Craigslist, moved from Los Angeles leaving all but some clothes and a car.

Congrats! Just make sure to keep some money tucked away in case things get tight or sudden un-forseen happenings. Me, well, I was too frivolous with my cash and bought way too many cars with no place to put them. Then I had no money to pay for rent, and no job Lucky I had such a great lady to take care of me! She never will let that whole thing slide though... heh...

Good luck with your new life! Its a big change that takes some getting used to as you figure out how you want to do everything on your own. I moved out when I was 18 with my brothers and rented a house in town. It was a lot of fun having friends over whenever and working on cars out in the shed whenever I wanted. Just don't go overboard on getting stuff as you'll have to move it all eventually.

Craiglist is freaking awesome, you can get pretty much anything that you could need for your house for cheap. All my furniture has either been given to me from friends or I've gotten it from Craigslist for cheap. And if you need to move anywhere far, just sell it and buy new stuff when you get to your new destination.

I tend to agree and I am extremely happy for you (and your parents).

As a parent, my goal was to raise children that would be independent and have the means to go out on their own. It was a proud moment in my life when they did that. I'm sure your parents feel the same way.

My daughter (and her now husband) each had their own apartment until they were married. Although it is hard on the budget, you won't regret it.

Check out Craigslist for furniture and thrift stores in your area for other stuff you'll be needing on the cheap.

i have been looking for a tv. i found a 61" HDTV LCD screen for $80! when i called it was sold
but thanks for the tips on looking for furniture and such! ill be sure to check them everyday!
I just got my key to the basement suite today they said i can start moving stuff in whenever and start living Feb. 1st.
just gotta head to the bank. get out some rent money to give them.
my boss at work is giving me a huge dresser! so thats one things on my list crossed off!

i been sleeping on a fueton or however you want to spell it.
so i been looking for beds. new beds are freakishly expensive!!! guess i got to find a used one :P

random question. how much do you guys spend for food each month? i eat alot so i budgeted about $300 - $350 for food each month. is that alittle overkill for a person living on there own? im only buying food for myself. i tend to over budget alittle bit.

$300/mo for food? You must eat out a lot.

Beds are really cheap, if you know where to look. The frames can be had at any used furniture place for around $25 max. You don't really need a headboard. Mattresses are the killer, and I can't really advise buying a used one. Shop around, I have bought a new set (full size) for as little as $200, but not much high quality to them.

Congratulations and good luck! Remember not to burn the bridge back to your parents house. You never know if you will need to use it again.

I have found the only way to budget food is by the day. Try eating on 15 a day, thats what I do. I'm 28 and single fwiw.

I was dropping off my work uniforms for cleaning and had to go by a furniture store's warehouse. I saw an old recliner sitting out front. I was thinking it would make a good replacement for my dog's worn out one. It was for give-a-way. The guy said I should have been there an hour earlier, that they had a bunch of them. I did not ask what happened to them.
Point is, is that new furniture stores, when delivering furniture, take the old away for the owners. The chair I was given was a very nice swivel rocking recliner. Too bad the wife didn't like it, it didn't match.
