I would really like to know the same thing as I am planning to move their myself. I am looking to save more than £800 / €800. This is the amount I would save to take with me when I have gone over to Greece for the summer - It'd cover me for spending money for 2/3 weeks or so and for a first months rent so I had that time to find a job - I know all jobs pay weekly over there and I could find work in a bar quite easily and rent is low and electricity practically non existent.

Amsterdam however is much more expensive for rent I'd say €350 a month for a room (min) and you'd prob need a months deposit and possibly references so you maybe need a job before you got an apartment. Also I'll be expecting to pay quite a lot for electricity coz its quite cold.

My plan is to book myself into a hostel for a week or two. There are a few hostels that will let you work for your board which will give you time to get settled, look for a job and an apartment. It all depends too on your qualifications and skills - If you are gonna walk into a job quickly or not - hostels are 15- 25 a night with their own kitchens so you can make your own food so depending on how long you want to gamble it takes you to get a job and if its a professional job you may have to wait a month for a salary....... There are a lot of depends in your question but for me (willing to live and work in a hostel and work in a bar) I'm going to want to be taking £1300 with me after I've booked flights and a weeks accommodation so €1500 really.

How much money should you save before moving out of state?

Answer - Moving moneyYou did not say which state you are moving from or going to. I would advise you to save as much money as possible. You will need money for the following: Transportation to your new state, meals, housing, utilities, incidentals, insurance & other miscellaneous & unexpected expenses. For me, it was about $1500 in moving expenses, plus six months of rent (you can get an idea of how much using the internet apartment sites), rental and utility deposits (again online) and a few hundred for food a month. Purchase of clothing, apartment niceties and so on should wait until you land that job. Be sure to keep a running tally of your expenses and be dutiful about reviewing them as you go along to avoid surprises. A good buffer would be around 8 to 10 thousand dollars.

How much money should you save before moving to California?

There are a number of factors which are relevant to your financial needs when moving to California. If you already have friends and/or relatives in California, with whom you will be staying until you are ready to rent your own place, then the financial needs are much less. If you already have a job offer, possibly your new employer is prepared to assist you in getting a place to live. If you just like the idea of living in California but you do not know anyone there or have any job offer, then I would recommend that you save at least $3000 before moving there.
