Weird question but, when do you see yourself leaving your parent's house? And why?
I want to say by 21 or 22, when I finish by degree since, by then, hopefully, I'll have saved or am earning enough to get a flat or a mortgage, but, due to several restrictions, I think I won't be able to move out without seriously disrespecting my parents and going against 'traditional' values till I'm 27 or 28.
When will you move out? Watch

...when I start Uni September next year, if I don't get into the local one. I come from a large(ish) family and it makes no sense having my bedroom sat empty most of the year when my little niece will be needing her own bedroom by then. Trying to work out the logistics of staying in whichever Uni town year-round.

I've not been living at home since I started uni 3 years ago, but I wouldn't class myself as completely moved out or independent since I've had to move around a lot and don't have a guaranteed somewhat stable income or home for once I finish uni. And I know I will likely have to move back home at least for a short while once I have finished my degree.
I'm currently saving as much money as I can so I can have money to fall back on for when I do get a long term place of my own. I will have 2k in savings by the end of this academic year and I don't plan to get my own place until I have at least or 8 or 9k in savings (so around a full years worth of expenses) in the event I lose my job. I think it will probably take me around a year of living back home to save up what I need.Last edited by SophieSmall; 22-01-2016 at 21:12.

I moved out at 16, and certainly wouldn't have ever considered staying past 18.
