We are officially in a recession. Bushfires in the Summer followed by Covid-19 has created a very difficult economic environment. Many people with solid careers have found themselves in a dire situation looking for work whilst managing debt. For most of us the largest debt we have is our shelter. A home loan or paying rent is a large part of our pay packet and when the money no longer comes, you have a problem. An option that a lot of us are turning to is moving back home with mum and dad. Should we do it?

The Pros of moving back home with the parents

It might not be everyone’s first choice, but it’s definitely a decision worth considering. Here are some of the benefits of moving back home to save money.

1. Pay down debt
2. Grow some savings to get a deposit on your own home
3. Contribute to family home – help
4. Offer care for other family members

The Cons of moving back home with the parents

While there are considerable benefits to moving back in with your parents to save money, there are some drawbacks as well. Of course, every situation is unique. Before you make the decision to move home, you want to see if you think any of these issues will impact you or your family.

1. Peer pressure
2. Different lifestyles
3. Sticking points around money
4. Expectations for Later

Moving is never easy, and what do I do with all my stuff. I don’t want to get rid of all my belongings which has taken me forever to gather. I love my couch and furniture and don’t want to shop for these things again once the tide turns and I get my own place again.

The answer is move back with the family and keep your prized possessions using self storage. What is the cost of self storage? That is the question. You definitely want to obtain some self storage prices before you commit to storage rental. Controlling self storage cost is important to help you save money. You want to get on the phone or jump online to compare self storage prices. Some websites require you to fill out a form so they can contact you to “sell” you.

You also have to get your goods into storage. You will need some cardboard boxes for storage as well. So more questions, where to get moving boxes? Should I get used packing boxes? Where can you buy cheap moving boxes? The answer to all these questions are in one simple easy to use place. The Kennards Self Storage website. Here you will find an easy to navigate one stop shop where you can get Kennards Storage box prices, order and pay online, then either have them delivered or pick up in store.
