Hi, all!

I'm interested in getting an opinion on the sorts of budgets required to live outside the family home.

I work part-time, between 20 and 25 hours per week, at a pay rate of $12.80 for a weekly income of about 340 to 380 dollars weekly, 1200 or so monthly.

(All figures in Canadian funds, at 0.60 to 0.65 US dollars per 1.00 Canadian dollar.)

Is this enough to live on one's own?
