• Is it difficult to move out of your parents house at a young age? And how can I get started?

    Best answer: You start with a job. No job, no moving out (no one will rent to you without you having a steady income). Start saving now. In order to get into an apartment, you will need first month's rent plus a security deposit (usually equal to one month's rent. Then add in furnishings, various daily stuff... show more
    Best answer: You start with a job. No job, no moving out (no one will rent to you without you having a steady income). Start saving now. In order to get into an apartment, you will need first month's rent plus a security deposit (usually equal to one month's rent. Then add in furnishings, various daily stuff (utensils, cooking stuff, etc.), and then groceries. Some of the stuff you can get at flea markets, yard sales, etc., but expect your bare minimum to be $2,000...assuming you are trying to rent a $750 apartment, you are now up to $3,500 before even moving in.

    Next, do a budget - utilities, cell phone, cable/internet car insurance, etc. Your expenses might surprise you - and the odds are you will underestimate your expenses by about 25%.

    As for working on your own - not without experience actually learning whatever business field you want to go into - figure 4 - 5 years of working for someone else getting experience, building contacts and saving money (you can't really think you can go out on your own in the business world without a few tens of thousands of dollars - there is no lender that will give you a business loan that covers more than 75% of your first costs).

    You have great dreams, but haven't done any of the homework.

  • What should I do? My life cannot get worse?

    I have been in a financial crisis for a while now and I met this guy on Jack'D and he promised me 3500 dollars. I gave him my bank info and hes been having me do this weird stuff like take out 500 dollars and go to Walmart and do their Walmart2Walmart service to transfer the money to him. He claimed I was supposed to get paid yesterday but he deleted his account on Jack'D and has been ignoring my phone calls. He made my bank account negative 1400 dollars and the bank basically said there was nothing they could do since I technically withdrew the money and gave it to him even though he deposited it. I also can't go to college anymore becuase that 3500 was going towards that, but now I really can't go. I have no job anymore, my other job let me go. I have no car, and I have no money. I just need some guidance right now so please no disrespectful comments. I just need help, bad.

  • I’m 14. Can I break a 100 dollar bill at a bank even if I don’t have an account?

    So for my birthday, my uncle gave me $100 in a single bill, which is awkward because I like to use smaller bills like $20’s. Can I go to a bank and break the 100 into smaller bills? I don’t have a bank account either so will they let me? Do I need an ID of any kind?

  • Can a co owner of a checking account close the account?

    I would like to get a debit card at my bank (Fox Valley Savings Bank). I called them and they said I needed a parent as a co owner of the account and I want to know if the parent can close or cancel the account.

    I was in a wreck recently (not at fault) and my car was totaled. I have a loan on it and after paying it off I should have roughly $3k to put down. Now my problem is...I dropped everything to move to Florida to be my mother's caregiver when she fell ill lathe beginning of the year. Now that things are getting back to normal with her I am able to get my life back to normal. I am working on a career change (should be finished and ready to work within a month or two. In the mean time have a bit of savings and had started to drive for Uber and Lyft in July. I was averaging a decent amount weekly and feel confident I could pay my bills with that income until I start working. Although there's not enough brought in yet to prove that to my credit union. But I can't do that if I don't have a car. I have tax returns for the last few years showing a decent income but no pay stubs or enough bank statements showing my potential income. My credit is fair (mid to high 600s) and I feel confident with that to qualify. I am only looking to finance $6-7k tops. If you think I could qualify with someone could give me any specifics of with who or how or anything else you can add that will help. Thank you!
