I'm enrolling in college in the fall and money looks a little tight. I'm going to get a job probably (approx 10hrs/week) and I think I''ll be making a little over $1200 per semester (approx 4 months). Does this seem okay? I don't know if I'll bring a car but if I do, i'll probably only use it for longer trips when riding the bus isn't an option. Plus have a meal plan.
So would $1200 be okay for 4 months for lunches w/ friends, shopping for random things I need (like detergent), some clothes shopping, and entertainment?
By clothes shopping, I mean like getting a cute shirt/ pair of shoes once in a while to treat myself. Also, any tips you have would be helpful!
