Go easy on the heat/cooling expenses. If there is someplace nearby where you can hangout without attracting attention or spending money, go there for the free utilities (library, book store, workforce center, etc) Use rags instead of papertowels, paper towels are expensive. Hang laundry to dry rather than use a clothes dryer, you can put them on hangers on the shower curtain bar. A bottle of downy is cheaper than a clothes dryer. Start spending immediately like you have no money, don't wait until it runs out before you get frugal. Look into getting a less expensive cable package, or possibly discontinuing it altogether. Maintain the things necessary for successful employment: car, health, phone, internet access (which you can also get at the library).
