  • Sick of the 'rents

    In April I turn 19 with no escape in sight, I just don't have the funds put back to move out on my own at the moment. I guess I should have planned for this sooner eh? I feel bad begin 18 and still under my parents roof, most of my friends have their own place or are working at it.

    Heh I have a cool dad but its time for me to go. I can't bring a girl home without him hitting on her. And you know women just love guys that live with their parents :ermm:

    So for you ones that have moved on, what age where you when you got your first place? How did you pay for it? And what is the one thing you wish you would have done but did'nt do when you moved out?

    I love living at home. Car Insurance and my server costs for my site are the only thing I pay. ~200 dollars per month

    The rest goes toward my baby(Mustang)

      Wow you have a mustang and pay less then $200 for insurance?!

      I'm driving a 90 grand marquis and mine is $145 a month, I don't even want to think about how much it would be if I owned a sports car. Let me know if you got a spare HO laying around. I've been itching to swap my lo-po 5.0 out for an HO

            I'm looking to move out at the moment, its starting to suck waking up after a night out and not knowing where I am, how to get home or who this girl is next to me.

            Is renting not an option? Surely a one bedroom apartment can't be that much.

                It depends where you look. One of downtown Saint Paul's nicest buildings (Galtier Plaza: shopping, restaurants, YMCA, parking, offices, apartments) rents out apartments for rather low rates. Sometimes I wonder why people don't just get an apartment at the Galtier.

                It has a prime location, great rates, etc, so sometimes I get to wondering why people take the more trashy apartments that are around.

                I have a few photos:

                Anyhow... I still am living with my parents, and I'm 19. When I transfer schools I'll be moving out to Galtier. One step at a time. Really, most people I know after graduation have continued to live at home.

                  I lived in the dorms at age 18 for college, then moved into a house with 4 other guys at age 19. Although rent for the house is rather cheap (262), it is still hard to throw away the money each month. I have been debating whether or not I want to live life to the fullest after college or work my ass off to try and own a house and become financially secure.

                  My advice to you is stay with your father for the time being. I was excited about living on my own, but once the free stops and the bills flow, it becomes so much less enjoyable. I definately wouldn't stay under his wing for to long, but another few months to get enough money saved for a few months of rent would be the smartest.

                      I am on my parents insurance and its 95 dollars a month

                      Look into Travelers Insurance good stuff

                      That is with one ticket and a wreck on my record. Very good insurance company.

                      As far as the engine where are you located in the South? There is www.stangparts.com that would have what you need. My site http://www.mustangevolution.com/forum has a couple of 5.0's for sale in the classifieds from time to time and there is always the bigger mustang boards like stangnet.com and corral.net

                      5.0s are really easy to come by.

                          I currently pay around $1200 for my one bedroom/ one bath in South Orange County. While that may seem high, it is actually an average price if not lower then you'll find in a few surrounding cities. On the plus size I'm only a couple miles from the beach; my place is 800+ sq ft and in a nice community located minutes from world class malls for those who like to waste money (like me). My past "homes" have ranged from student housing back during college upto 3 bedroom places I shared with others (good way to go for your first place as you save money on rent, share the costs of utilities, furniture, etc...) and more recently my “own” place. Leaving the parents was years ago; in my case it wasn’t a hard decision – I went to school 400 miles from my home which is just far enough not to commute Moving out either for college or simply because you’ve reached that stage is a great way to get a real sense of freedom and also kick your life into the next stage; many people who stay home well after turning 18 stagnate in life unless they are actively involved in school or in a professional career. If you can’t afford it now then home is probably your best option but as soon as the option arises, get the heck out of there!

                            DANG! $1200.00/month? Gees you must live no where near Irvine or Newport.

                              That is a good advice right there.
