I'm 23 and I'll be moving out of my family home by the end of this month. I did go away to college, but lived in dorms, so this will be a "real" move.

I just wanted to wish you luck and tell you it might be scary, but it's exciting, too!

I have a couple options: move out of state (a couple of which I can do with job transfer or other reasons) or stay in MI, which I don't necessarily want to do.

In saying all of that, I have been getting very overwhelmed at times when I am really thinking/planning on moving out (mainly because I have lived in the same house my entire 22 years of life, I knowww, crazy!) I am ready to move on to this next chapter in life, but it definitely is scary. Especially since where I want to be is in another state. Anyway, can anyone just give me some advice on how to make this next step in life? I'm open to any suggestions.

So you're giving up mom's home cooking for ramen noodles?

Just always remember to spend wisely,never buy crap you don't need(until you can afford it).

One person in here mentioned you can rent furniture(as in rent to own)),don't do it,you will wind up paying way too much for crappy furniture.I would suggest garage sales if you don't mind owning second hand stuff.

Look for places that offer to include utilities in on the rent,sometimes you can get a better deal that way.

Don't go into DEBT or you will be back at mom and dad's.

Good luck in your big journey into the real world.:
