Feature: Hold On We're Moving Home
According to a new study conducted by the Pew Research Centre, for the first time in 150 years, adults aged 18-35 are more likely to be living in the family home than anywhere else. Honestly, I'm not shocked. I wish I could say that I'm not a part of the majority, alas, I am. In my defence, I just moved back two weeks ago to save money for travel (a perfectly worthy cause). This said, I have countless friends in their mid twenties who continue to live at home by choice and I don't blame them. With the increasing cost of rent and decreasing wages, it is practically impossible to live out of home as a young person.
So if you're like me and thinking of moving home, let me give you a piece of advice. There is no way you're fitting all the things you have accumulated back into your childhood bedroom. This means you'll need to minimise, big time. Unfortunately this also applies to the contents of your wardrobe.
It might not seem like it now, but this is a GOOD thing. Streamlining your wardrobe will not only remind you of the great purchases which got lost amongst all the junk (yes I'm talking about that body con, sequinned skirt you once wore to a Blue Light Disco in 2003) but will open your eyes to the staples you don't have and actually don't know how you've been living without.
In the interest of making getting ready in the morning one hundred times easier, we advise that you trade in the last ten years of bad shopping decisions for these ten items we know you really need.
