First of all, congratulations! Moving out of your parents’ house is a huge step. Whether you’re moving down the block or across the country, you’re on your way to living your best, most independent life. Before you start dreaming about how you’re going to blast music at 2:00 a.m. or stock your pantry with the sugary cereals your mom never buys, there are a few things you should know. Let’s take a look at four tips for moving out of your parents’ home.

More often than not, leaving the nest doesn’t mean taking every single thing you own with you. If you plan to leave your high school yearbooks or your old sports trophies with mom and dad, make sure to talk to them about it first. Otherwise, you better start looking at storage units.
Either way, you don’t want to be unpleasantly surprised when your bedroom has been converted to an at-home gym the next time you visit. Communication is key!
