Hey Guys

Hope you're all doing incredibly well
Minor side note, I recently moved out and now live completely on my own which means I have to do my own dishes.

Feel free to give me independent living tips if you got any.

Make your bed every day. In the morning.

People underestimate the feeling you get by getting in a nicely done bed after a long day.

And wash your sheets at least once a week.

Pay your bills on time.. even if it involves you eating Ramen noodles for a couple of days (just using that for an example)
Keep your credit score up..
Buy what you need.. not what you want..
Use paper plates..
Use grocery store bags for trash bags in bathrooms..

Find a way to reward yourself each week for sticking to your budget. Even if it is just a celebratory candy bar, make sure you have one positive thing to enjoy when you keep to your guns. And don't give in when you mess it up. Learn to live within your self imposed limits. Your entire life will thank you later.

good for you Nick !!! dust-at least once a week-keep on a budget-you have those cheaper stores there for cleaning products-stock up when things are on sale.
always,always have more than one package of toilet paper-remember you are alone-someone should throw you a house/apartment warming party-this starts you off with all kinds of stuff you can use.

when you get lonely and it's quiet-take up a new book!! -always make sure taps are off...a nice lamp makes it feel more cozier than a bright light. Some of us have been where you are..the first big step for mankind...congrats & enjoy!!!


put your socks in the darn wash not on the floor!! :nerd:

lol at doing your own dishes. If you don't let them pile up you should be fine. Invest in Tupperware or any type of food container so you can save left overs. Or if you order you can put it in the containers for another day. I've lived on my own since I was 18 dorming and from there roomates so I remember ramen being my best friend and toast. Turn the lights off when you're not using them or use candles. If you recycle (please say you do) get one of those bins where you can separate the recyclables.

Thanks for the valuable tips, the last few days have been incredibly hectic and overwhelming. I'm really bad at decorating but my girlfriend is moving in with me next month so hopefully I can dodge the dishes part lol. I'm starting to feel like i'm part of some kinda system already now that i'm literally responsible for my own survival, I don't know how to explain it but George does. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ4SSvVbhLw

LED lamps! They don't use a lot of energy so don't cost a lot to use! And they are bright for their size!

Mind your thermostat! It is better to layer up and wear warm fuzzy socks with a lap blanket in winter than to faint when you open your power bill for one month! :dizzy:

Invest in a bucket of some kind even if it is an empty cat litter bucket from a friend who has cats! They work well as trash cans, (so get more than one if you plan to have any for dedicated trash cans) and for mopping floors, soaking aching feet in, stain treating clothing/handwashing items, and also if you are sickish and might puke they do fine duty beside the bed!

I need a raincoat when I do the dishes, it gets that messy and out of control... :haha:
Ohhh and i bought myself a night sky globe that you can leave on all night and it makes your ceiling look like a clear night sky view, highly recommend it.

I always wanted to have a floor mattress, I hate beds, they take space and make noise so finally, i sleep on the floor and it made an incredible difference to me.
