I very rarely save my money, but now I'm in university it gives me a chance of being more careful with my money. Buuut I still have a few bad habits when it comes to shopping in such places as Blue Banana and Topshop, and most online alternative clothing stores XD
@cpvr, a fairly good idea for you if you want to move out is to look into buying/renting homes that are foreclosed. I know in my area for a 3 or 4 bedroom town home in the city costs like $12k. It's not beat up or anything, the area isn't the best but that's due to a high poverty rate but still, a house is a house as long as the living conditions are tolerable.
I don't have any problems living anywhere. I can tolerate any living conditions, even they're in a bad neighborhood.
Try Rent-a-Center, I'm pretty sure you can build credit through that but I'm not sure
I'm pretty sure its fairly at Walmart but I'm not to positive. The thing thats cool about rent-a-center though is you can start off with something small (like rent a game console for $10/wk) and it'll help. I'm pretty sure they're also pretty lenient with your budget.
