    Hopefully moving out in March/April and am hoping to rent a 1 bedroom flat, and was wondering if anyone else is living in a 1/2 bed flat and how much rent is, and also the cost of bills (food, gas & electricity, water, etc) if no-one minds me asking:blush:

    My bills are per month:

    Rent: 660
    council tax: 85
    Water: 27
    Gas: about 50 depending on how often we've had heating on ( card meter)
    Elect: about 25 ( key meter)
    Food: 300/400

    My non essential is virgin media phone/tv/ intenet. I have extra large package so thats between 75/95 per month.

    Thats all i can think of at the moment
