Leaving for college during a tough economy can be challenging for anyone and for some of us, impossible!

Budget Constraints Keeping You Home Bound Instead
of Dorm Bound? Dormify Your Room!
It's a tough economy! So if you find yourself having to live at home with mom and dad instead of on your college campus this term to save money, don’t stress out! Change your mindset! Upgrade your old bedroom to reflect your new college lifestyle and personality, make it your new dorm digs... dormify it! 

As for experiencing your newfound freedom and college lifestyle to the fullest while living at home… talk to your parents and reach a compromise. While you may not be able to stay out all night, your curfew and house rules can be adjusted to reflect your new stage of life. Let’s be honest, staying out all night then attending class will not result in the best grades or keep you healthy anyway.

Just remember when experiencing life changes… it is important for both you and your parents to compromise, be patient with each other, and practice moderation. Given time, both you and your parents can begin to let go and everyone involved will adjust to your new college lifestyle!

Who knows? Maybe next term you’ll be able to head to the dorms! Live Dorm Smart!
