Monthly living expenses

The next part of the guide will go through the monthly living expenses that you may want to think about. A monthly living expense is something you need and is paid for monthly.

We will tell you how to work out the cost of each monthly living expense. You can then write how much each monthly living expense will cost you.

You may want to fill this out before you think about moving as you can decide whether you will be able to afford to live there. You will then need to check how much money you get each month with how much you think it will cost. Your monthly income includes any wages you earn and benefits you receive.
