How much do I need to move out?

I am moving to a larger city from a small town. I have $2300 dollars saved and make 700$ every two weeks. Is 3,000$ enough to move out?

    No. Regardless of where you're moving, 3K isn't a safe bet by any means and $350 a week is not a livable wage in any city I know of unless you have a roommate or two.

    You need a better paying job if you're going to move out, for starters.

    There's no way anyone here can tell you if it's enough. In some areas, it would be, in others no.  You need to find out (1) what housing costs will be wherever you want to live, and (2) if you have enough. That's not possible from the little information you gave in your question. I can tell you this, however--you're making less than $20K a year--and that's not very much. The places you will be able to live on that are very limited. You'd have to find a place that wouldn't cost you more than about $450/month to rent--most larger cities won't have places that cheap.  The average rent in New York, for instance is over $2000 a month.

    Have you bothered estimating your expenses and putting together a budget?

    Get back to us when you figure out where the $ goes. And you have good credit and a good rental history.

    Unless you are moving in with someone - you don't earn enough money per paycheck to pay for rent and have enough money left for other things you may need.

    Your savings isn't the problem.  Your income is.

    You are probably going to need first and last months rent plus a deposit. 

    The cash to have your stuff  transported, and then the money to either kit out this new place or some money for a few new bits and bobs. New insurance policies money for gas, et cetera et cetera.

    Whatever you think you will need, double it.
