When you graduate from college, it feels like you are finally free to start your life as an adult. You are no longer stuck in school, and no longer at the mercy of your parents’ rules. It can all be exhilarating and liberating. But sometimes and most often than not, that initial enthusiasm fizzles out when one has to deal with the variety of bills, insurances and rent. It can be quite a bit of a challenge to manage it all. Here is what you should consider if you are thinking of moving back to your parents’ place.
Look at the situation realistically
Moving back to your parents’ house in your early or mid-twenties can be a huge life changing decision for you. Once you have had the taste of independence, going back to living with your parents might involve a few complications. Consider things like how many days you realistically plan on living there; work out the logistics of space that both parties want to give each other; will you be living there without any rent or pay a minimal amount and discuss about the house rules.
The cost of moving long distance
Moving is not a cheap business. It is not a very pleasant one either. But with the right company on hire, this experience can definitely become less stressful. Being a student or an early graduate, it is evident that you would have a lot of things in your dormitory or the place you are renting. Consider if it will be okay to take most of it to your parents’ house. Also, consider which are the things you most definitely cannot do without. Before planning a move, make a list of all the major items with you and ponder upon whether it will be wise to take it all along with you to your new place. Also, when you start packing up all the needful, do not forget to buy the boxes and claim freebies which will make your moving experience a bit less costly.
Go through the moving companies and their quotes carefully and select a reliable one after much thought. After all, student moving can be difficult as you most definitely do not want your precious college memories to be crumpled or broken during the moving process.
