Moving out of Parents House

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they need to cut the ties that bind them to their parents’ home and move away to make their own home with a family of their own. This rite of passage has been present in every society for many years, and it involves a certain coming of age ritual which involves moving your belongings from your parents’ house into you own house. It’s a sure sign of maturity which shouldn’t be taken lightly. But what must one do in order to begin the painful process of Moving Out of Parents House?

There are a few things to consider before the move, and so today we have for you a few tips on how to properly prepare to finally sell that racecar bed (or don’t, we’re not judging),and finally begin Moving Out of Parents House. Let’s begin!

Get a Job

If you don’t have a job at the moment, try looking for one. Like right now. Moving out of Parents House can’t be done otherwise, unless it’s your parents that are helping you move out, and still its recommended you have financial independence first, rather than gambling on your parents not agreeing on your life choices and cutting you off. Try looking for a job that pays the rent, utilities and gas money, and still lets you go out at least once a week.

Save some money

It is crucial that you take some of your cash, at least 10 to 15% a month, and put it in a savings account. There are a lot of things overlooked when moving out, such as furniture expenses, deposits, etc. So you definitely want to have a cushion to fall on when things get tough, and if you find that the amount you choose is too steep, make an honest evaluation on what amount of money you can put away without it affecting your day to day.

Taking Action

Firstly, let’s think for a moment that rather than being kicked out at 28, you’re moving out at 21. What I mean by it is, you have to plan this out at least 1 month in advance, so if you have taken a decision based on your need of independence and growth, then plan it for a month beforehand; if however, your parents are pressuring you to move out, don’t take it the wrong way, but ask for at least a couple of months to get your stuff together (both physically and emotionally). Also ask if they have anything they don’t use and have stored away you can take with you, like Dad’s old beanie bag chair, or Mom’s 80’s style dishes.

Find a roommate

Last but not least, a great way of taking this step is to not take it alone, Find local listings of people looking for someone to rent with and met up with them to talk about you possibly becoming roommates. Make sure you cover all aspects of the move and the living accommodations to avoid future problems.
