Rent I Pay


Today, about a fifth of children still live at home with their parents until the age of 29. Wow.

If you don’t land a job right out of college, chances are you’re back home, reliving that period of time you spent between high school graduation and freshman year. It’s like a crossover of Van Wilder and Groundhog Day, except you’re living with your parents.

My advice is try to move out when you get the chance. Saving money by living with mom and pop might seem like the best move for those swimming in student debt, but if you can land a full time job, weight your expenses and pack up.

Moving out forces you to learn some crucial life skills real fast. Like doing your own laundry (among other things).
