    I may have a part time job lined up at starbucks and wondered if anyone else survives on a part time job and how it is for you.

    I'm not sure what my hours are yet but I'm wondering if I could save up to move out of my parents house.

    Whats a kind of realistic budget for rent etc. Im looking to move in with roomates about 10 minutes from the city centre.

    umm.... who knows when you provide no info.

    are you studying?
    How many hours are you expecting to get?
    whats the pay rate?
    how much rent, if any, are you paying to stay at your parents?
    10mins from which city centre? Bodmin? London? Bristol? it makes a huge difference.

    I have to agree with nadnerb. Are you getting a student loan?

    My flatmate lives off her part time wage. Her loan hardly covers her accommodation at all, and she tries very hard to stay out of the red. She didn't have a comfortable life before the p/t job at all, but now it's better. She can afford food every week.
