Notes

  1. We will probably have to pay 1st and last months rent for the first month.
  2. 1st month includes an approximate $100 deposit
  3. There will be at least a $60 fee for deposit and setup of phone and internet (check with Yellow Bike).
  4. These numbers are estimated from my experience at the laundromats. Four load washers at the place on Guadalupe and 37th are $3.25. I estimated that we would be doing around 50 loads per month. Then we add the dryer loads (each dryer accepts 2 loads (or half a 4-load washer load)) and costs about $1 per load to actually get the clothes dry.
  5. Buying a steam cleaner or equivalent
  6. These numbers come from the Living Wage Calculator
  7. Assuming 1800 a year for commercial insurance (Simon you had some numbers on this didn't you?)
  8. I calculated this based on my dad's theory that the cost of maintaining a vehicle is approximately 25 cents per mile over the lifetime of the vehicle. Using this number I approximated 1000 miles per month.
  9. I used 1000 miles per month, 20 miles per gallon or fuel, and $3 per gallon of fuel.
