Today, travelling to the other part of the country for work has kind of become a mandate and people are doing it to work in their dream company or earn money to make their dreams come true. Whatever be the reason, travelling to other part of the country involves money and most people choose to stay in hostel or PG to save money over brokerage and other monthly expenses.
However, renting a home makes you independent and teaches you a lot that life has not taught you. Remember our moms used to say, it is not easy to manage a home; yes, it is true. Once you start living in a house independently you will understand how. However, if you have shifted recently, or planning to live an independent life by living in a rented home in Bangalore, Delhi, Pune or other cities, then here are a few things you need to know.
- Manage your own finances
The first and the foremost thing you need to learn when living alone is to manage your own finances. Renting a home is easy but what comes after that is the difficult part. Do not go out spending every penny you have on your rented apartment, learn to save some. The day you learn to manage this part, you learn to live an independent life.
- Make your own decisions
The day you move out of your house, you need to learn that there would be no one to help you with your decisions. Staying in a rented home involves the same. Right from which WiFi plan to buy to where to keep the bed/cupboard is something you have to decide on your own and no one can help you out with the same.
- Wake up on your own
Once you move out, you need to start managing your own schedule and wake up on your own. No one will wake you up and you cannot blame anyone if you are late to office or any other work. So, learn to wake up on your own and manage your own schedule for work. This will also make you independent in life.
- Buy your own groceries
Living in a rented apartment is not that easy, as no one will tell you what you need for your home and what not. You have to buy your own groceries and remember to take out time from your schedule for the same. Yes, online grocery is available these days, but which one to buy and which one to not is your decision altogether.
- Cook for yourself
If you are to live alone or in a shared apartment with your roommates/flatmates, you need to understand that your mom is not there and no food would be kept in the refrigerator as well. So, learn the easy-to-cook recipes and cook them on your own. You can also enjoy sharing food with your flatmates, though.
Renting your own home makes you independent. You have to take your own decisions, manage your own finances and also arrange for your own food. This is a new phase of life and enjoy it to the fullest as this will teach you a lot in life.
