I had my stuff in boxes for a few months till I got my furniture. I got stuff at a second hand discount store and I started filling up the house. I finished unpacking after six months.

My parents offered to help with the moving and buying of stuff. I politely said no. They mean well but I'd like to do it by myself. That's the fun part. It's like a big adventure that I need to go on by myself.

I saved up so I could rent a furnished apartment. It would be a lot more convenient to just bring in my stuff. I get to save money for my future furniture too.

I started out in a shoe box apartment. I had so much hand me down stuff I didn't know where to put all of it. I ended up sleeping in a sofa bed with boxes everywhere. I looked like a hoarder till I got everything together.

It has taken me forever to settle, and I still have not unpacked every last box. I just brought so much with me, to a house that is just not big enough. It is perfect in size for me as one person, I don't need a huge place, I just have too much stuff, and I was lucky enough to get a lot of help with second hand furniture from my family. It just takes a while to set everything up, and put everything where it belongs, but the process is really fun and you discover a lot about yourself. I wouldn't change anything about it.

Having my own place was a whole lot of responsibility. I had to ask friends to help move in stuff, unpack everything then have no idea where to put them. I had a small place so everything I couldn't use was stocked in my parent's shed until now. I had to do all my errands and clean house. It was just a total mess for the first few months.

I was looking forward to getting my first apartment before. I packed and labeled everything so it would be easy to move in. I ended up having them boxed for a few months since I was tired from work always. I just had the basics out. The bed, my clothes, shoes, tv and some kitchen stuff. I ate on top of the boxes and I was getting to be a slob till my buddies took pity and helped me out.

Getting and moving in my own place was hard. ALl the packing and unpacking was so tiring. I thought it would never end. I had to arrange everything and cram it in my small apartment. Most of my stuff were hand me downs. I just had to make the place look cozy for myself. My house was a mess for a few months. I didn't know where to put everything till my friends helped.

Moving out of your folks' home just might be the most essential stride you take toward autonomy. You can at last live by your own guidelines, without curfews or limitations, and deal with duties all alone calendar and in your own specific manner.

Freedom! Hahaha! I will not be easy at first and sooner or later you will get the hang of it. You can have your own kingdom to rule! The only sad part would be the fact that you are going to pay for the bills and not your parents. :'(

My first thought was I can do anything in my own place. Nobody would care how I decorate and how I place my stuff. It was a fun experience for me and I really enjoyed moving in my own apartment. I had people help me out and it was a bonding experience with my family and friends too.
