Income - $1200
Saving money for the taxman.
Rainy day funds.
Assuming you'll want some money leftover to improve your credential so you aren't working for 1,200.
Assuming you want to save some money for some goal you have in mind.
Only you know the math.
Most financial analysts recommend you save AT LEAST 20% of your income when you're 20 if you ever want to reach financial independence before you're too old to enjoy it.

If you live in any of the US major cities, forget it. You can't survive on 1200 a month. I'm sorry. This is not the 1970's, 80's or 90's. Unless you live in Phoenix, Arizona. Expect to pay key money, 3 months a down payment [ which is paid ahead before you even try to move in], broker fee, etc. Plus show proof of income, recommendations if any, statements from work, etc. And with all the bills, you will be paying close to $3000 with everything first. And then the regular rent should be $1100 --> $1400 depending. Plus electric, gas and water bill as part of utilities. Cable, phone and internet if you need, etc. So no. Wait until after community college. Go for an internship in the field of your study, get references, and search for jobs ASAP before you graduate.1
