I had hoped for $50, but I took a Lyft once (12.75), and had a ton of trouble with my metro card (loss of $8), so I spend closer to $70. Also, I bought a ticket to go to my future home to find a house.
I also just did something scary and sent an email to the people doing my immigration paperwork to ask them if they thought I should buy or rent. Also apparently property management people in my new home wants to know if I am a US permanent resident, and to show my papers to that effect. Sketchy.
