Just curious. I’m saving up for an apartment.
If you could give any tips for living on your own that would be awesome too. Thanx!
I was 18, almost 18 and a half. Kind of strange circumstances. My parents were getting re-married and moving the family down the Bay Area where my dad lived. I knew I couldn’t live with them together, so I moved in with a friend.
My advice is to live simply. You don’t have to have everything your parents do. Learn to get by with less and build up some savings. Save at least $10/paycheck. Next year double that amount and each year keep doubling until you get to a decent amount.
Some great places to find things for your new place are Craigslist and Freecycle.
Also scour yard sales and thrift shops.
Good luck. It’s really great when you can make it on your own.
