Long time renter, first time buyer. What am I forgetting to budget for? When you bought a house, what expenses took you by surprise? How much of a cash and credit reserve should I keep available for the first six months? [more inside]

I need help for a two week rental of a furnished room for a couple near Shimbashi station or Akihabara in Tokyo. Rental budget is 60000~100000yen for us combined.
I've looked at the gaijin guest house links, but they seem to be out of our price range with linen and cleaning fees. Any advice?

As a 30-year old who is a part-time grad student and a full-time office worker, are my goals to get control over my life (weight loss, finances, home, work, etc) really unrealistic? Is there a way to just be NORMAL and balanced, or is it really just normal not to really have things together, even as an adult? [more inside]
