This is a very hard thing to answer. I mean things change very quickly. First, if you are living in an aparment building your cost will be much lower than if you are renting a house. On average a month I pay about $30 water/sewer/trash, $200 tv/phone/internet, $100 electric, $50 summer/$150 winter for gas. If you are looking for an apartment try to find one that is heated by electric and not gas, that will save you boat loads of money. So an average month I pay between $480-$380 a month in utilities. Though, if you don't need a phone, internet, and cable your cost goes down by $200/month. So try to figure out ways to budget your money.
