How much to cut calories?

Ok, right now I am bulking and I am gaining at a steady weight of about a pound a week doing weights 4 days a week and cardio 2 days week. As of now I am consuming about 3150 calories a day, however, I need to figure out how much I should decrease my calories because this week is my last week at my job and I know I burn some calories at it....let me explain. I work as a bagger at a grocery store and I bag groceries and bring them to people's cars and load them. I work 24 hours a week (Two 8 hour days/Two 4 hour days) and for that entire shift I'm on my feet and walking. After I quit my job this week, I'll pretty much just be chillin at my house and not doing too much (besides lifting 4 days/cardio 2 days). How much should I adjust my calories to compensate for the less activity I'll be doing?
