    This may be me soon. Right now, I have $1,300 in my savings and about $240 due to come in from my part time job.
    My rent will be $840, due August 1st, plus water & electric ($80) due in August.

I was ineligible for food stamps and welfare (because I work part time natch) and try to go to school one night a week.
