To recap my money situation, for those not familiar with it: I have a large amount of money from my grandmother to pay for school and other expenses related to school, namely my living expenses while I’m in school and maintaining good grades. The living expenses cover an apartment (nothing extravagent) and food etc. When I was 18 all the money was transfered into my control, but because I wasn’t sure I could manage all that money responsibly I asked that my mother be a cosigner, so whenever I need money I have to go through her.
When I moved into this apartment my mother and I agreed on the sum of $485 per month for rent, food and utilities. On paper, it SHOULD work. Realistically, it doesn’t. Laundry, deposits, maintainance for the apartment adds to that cost.
So now I need to make an itemized list of expenses and turn it over to my mom so I can get enough money to pay for all this…. It shouldn’t be too hard, but it needs to get done. Hence putting it up as a goal here. Wish me luck… 7 years ago
