This house is not fully furnished we only have lights and not more than 4 ceiling fan and imagine that we only do laundry during the weekends and most the day is spent at work. so we don't do so much activity. we are just there to sleep, take a bath, do a little laundry.

beds are not a problem. our company provides us a free beds and some toiletries that i think good for a month.

and may I ask if we bought a car what else do we need? or it is okay that we are taking our landlords rides? where can we save more? Because after a year. we are the one who will pay for our flight tickets and we all want to atleast have a savings of $3000 when we go back to our home country. That I think is the breakeven of the cost of getting here.
who is your Landlord rocketshrimp? Is it a Business or a person?

Where are you located "outside of Austin"? (tell us the general area)

It is a person not a business entity. Im not yet that familiar with the place. We are near bastrop. But I wont say the exact location. I have nothing against my landlord i want to know if the prices are fair.

What I mean with the cost is the money we pay for the plane ticket, placement fee, visa process. We are 100% legal to be here. I just dont want to disclose so much information about my exact location or identity.

We are not doing business with the landlord. the landlord is just our accommodation and ride going to work and back to the house.

$200/mo is fair, $2400/mo for a 6BR house is actually a good deal, as are the utilities. Honestly, even the transportation at $10/day doesn't sound outrageous if you're in a rural area.

Based on the numbers you've provided, you're spending $460 per month on overhead. You should have no issues saving $3000 in a year - even at minimum wage.

$10 a month to help pay electricity for a 5 bedroom house holding 12 people sounds like a bargain to me. I have 3 people in my house and pay $500 a month for electricity.

Guys can you help us find an apartment or a house that has 3 to 4 beds? Our landlord is really not helping us. We bought a car and he raise our rent +$50 each and demand a parking fee of 100 per car per month. That is not in our contract. We already file a 30 days notice and plan to move out on 3rd week of June. PLease help us!
