Things to Remember
Leaving the comfort of the family nest can be an overwhelming and a life changing experience. From having someone always there to coming home alone many things will be shifting, including your belongings.
There may be a number of different reasons why you are choosing to leave the humble abode but before you make the important decision ensure you are doing it for the right reasons.

Gaining independence and creating your own future are positive reasons to make the change.
Often we find we need to move out to relocate closer to our job, where we are studying or if we need a change of scenery. But are you ready to face this stage of your life on your own, would you consider moving into a share house, or getting a few friends who also see moving out an option. To stick together in the end will save you money and you won’t be coming alone to an empty home (and you can share the housework).
If you are planning on moving out alone it is important that you have a clear understanding of how much this experience is going to cost you.

How will you fill the place and give it personality? It is important all of this is thought about before you get all excited, settle on a place and end up not enjoying this amazing experience.
