In many countries leaving home before marriage is a great insult to your family. At first you may think this sounds silly but family values like this greatly increase financial savings. Now I know many of us assume that living at home with your family is a sign of lacking revenue but in reality it is an investment. How you might ask, well I’ll show you.
Your parents work their whole lives so that they could support you and your siblings but now that you can support yourself your first thought is it is time to move. But is that really the best option or is that what you have seen others do and believe it is time for your independence. Once you move out that means you have an electric bill, gas bill, rent, water, bill, phone, bill and the list can go on depending on your spending habits. So with that new job you just got that may be paid between 12 to 15 an hour are you really ready to take this battle on all by yourself?
Just think about it for a moment. If you have the option of staying at home that is an amazing gift you can utilizes to your advantage. What I mean by taking advantage of the situation is that you should do your part in whatever agreement you have with your family whether that is food or a bill but in the end the cost is much cheaper then going out on your own. Money is power so save it while you are young. Living at home makes it possible to save almost half of every check while still having fun. And remember it is not like you need to do this forever if you did this for just 2 or 3 year just think about how many zeros you can have in your account, in a good way.
The economy changes all the time so having full grown adults that are capable of dividing the bills so that no one needs to struggle is an opportunity we are not doing more of. However, none of this is possible with out having family values. We continue to disregard the importance of family and that will destroy us in more way then one. We are not strong on our own but together we can invest in ourselves and build a better future for the next generation.
In our current economy many run to taking out mortgages that can last a lifetime. Why does getting your dream home need to involve going so far into debt. If you truly want to buy that perfect home you should buy what you can afford so look into your options and stay at home until you can pay for it at once because the longer it takes to pay for something the more money the banks can take from you. We must bring family values back into our homes because we will not survive without it.
