I'm trying to knock down student loans. I've always had about $800 to play with after all bills and $300 per month budgeted on food. I don't know if I'll make it on less than half.

However, I just got another job offer for $8k more, but its in Santa Fe.

My student loans run approximately 400 a month.. as far as rent .. always try to keep it low. You may "budget" funds for food and such but a key finding I found when running a tight "budget" was that crazy things always came up.. a 75 dollar speeding ticket, a 100 dollar hooker bill, random things here and there always would push that budget into the red. Try to leave as much "padding" in your budget as possible.

Also, these title changes make my day.

Those private loans suck. I came up $5K short from my government loans this semester and I almost had to get a private one at 13.7%. Thankfully my parents were approved for a PLUS loan at 8%.

I am making monthly payments while I'm in school to help keep the loans as low as possible. I'm not looking forward to 6 months after I graduate.

My student loan has been taken over by sallie mae and varies with the prime anywhere from 1.5% to 5%. the payments keep going down over time. I think I pay about $250 a month currently. It's 75% unsubsidized I think. I dont worry about it.

What was the question? you want to move?

Since you tend to be sent on the road for long periods of time, consider an alternate solution.

My next-door neighbor is a Marine Captain. When unmarried Marines without permanent domiciles are deployed overseas, they often rent a storage locker, cram all their worldly possessions into it, and abandon their apartment.

This requires a certain degree of flexibility in terms of negotiating lease contracts, such as stipulating a month-to-month contract with reasonable intent-to-vacate terms. It's a bit easier for the military folks as our apartment management gives them a better deal in this regard than they would for a civilian, but shop around. Even if you have to pay a premium at the leasing office, it's probable you'll still save in the long-term.

Yes, it's a bit of a hassle, but the savings can be significant. I don't know how much you're paying for rent, but where I am a one bedroom apartment goes for $1600-$1700, whereas a storage locker large enough to contain all my possessions (10x20) would run perhaps $150-$200.

Your company should be willing to establish a mail collection drop for you at their office. Back when I was sent out on projects lasting for months at a time, I'd appoint someone at the office to gather up all my mail once a week, separate out the supermarket flyers and such, and FedEx it to me at the hotel. I've even filed my income taxes from a hotel room, twice (first time in Buffalo in '00, second time in Burbank in '04). The first time, my residency status was technically vagrant, although that's not a valid option so I filed as a resident of New York.

Huster,

When you are sitting at home bored because you have no money to spend on Thai pre-teen boys, make the most of it and learn a dance.

While Santa Fe sucks, at least the local track time is cheaper, so you'll save some money there.
