Helpful Hints for the First Time Mover?

Me and the significant other are moving out in about 2 weeks time to our first 1 bedroom apartment. Rent is looking about 1/3 of total income including water, gas and trash (not bad for Southern California) and most of our major furniture/appliance costs seems to be taken care of already. Is there anything we should consider, highlight, or otherwise be aware of before we live the life of paupers?

Big (Broke?) Lebowski

I just finished watching the horribly mangled version of the Big Lebowski on Comedy Central. I never really thought about in all the times I watched it til now, but how do you think Lebowski pays the bills?
