keith's cold outside

Help!

Hi everyone. I just stumbled upon this community, and I hope someone can help me out.

My best friend and I are planning to move to Vegas from Chicago in the coming fall. This will be my first time out on my own. Basically I have no idea what I am doing or what I am getting into. I just know that I want to be there and not here.

I have a couple of questions:
1.) How much money should I save?
2.) What are the odds of me getting a job there while I'm still living here? Do I start applying for them now even though I won't be there for quite a few months?

Those are the two things I'm most afraid of. Saving and finding a job. I would like to know that I have a job before I pack up and move out there. I'd hate to have to turn around and come home.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
