Re: Moving out first time.
It's all on you, so I'm sure $ from Sams won't go a long way, but if you want to be happy, avoid getting high limit credit cards, you'll be working for Visa or Mastercard for the next 5-7 years if you max those out. Keep it simple and don't spend what you can't afford.
Lastly, try and save a minimum of 10% each check and don't touch it, treat it like a bill that you have to pay, just put it in an account that is hard to access and no ATM card associated with the acct. Roommates help, but make sure you can trust him and he pays his share of the bills on time (you too) this can go a LONG way toward maintaining a friendship or ending one rapidly.
Good luck and have fun.
