If you don’t want to move out then this post isn’t for you.
If you do have desires to move out of your parents house, but don’t know how to do it, then this post is for you.
So… are you ready to get out and stay out?
Set A Date
You may have hit the breaking point with you parents and told yourself, “I’m done! I need to get out!”
Or you may just be at that point where your parents smother you so much and now at an age where your embarrassed to tell anyone you still live with your parents.
Wherever your at, whether that’s high school, college, or out of college when you get the hint it’s probably time.
Set a goal, hold yourself accountable, and write it down. There’s power in writing things down.
The goal could be as simple as, “By this date on ___ ____ year I will not be living with my parents.
Create A Budget
When you find your place, before moving in, go over how much money you’re bringing in currently and go over your expenses.
- Cleaning products
- Hygiene products
- Extra curricular activities
No Looking Back
You may be saying… “Why do I need to create a budget? I have money from my parents coming in every month.”
Are you really moved out then?
Essentially, you’re at a boarding school where your parents are paying for the bills.
No matter what happens. It’s time to leave the nest and experience this crazy world.
Make the most of it and fight through those tough times. It will make you into an incredibly strong person that can handle whatever challenges come your way.
When you’re paying for things on your own, it’s essential to create an emergency fund.
Because things aren’t always going to be going so smooth.
Check out Robert Farrington’s post on “The College Investor” where he mentions emergency funds, some strategies with it, and how to be prepared when things don’t go the way you planned it.
