Moving away or staying at home?

In this section you will look at how to budget when moving away, as there will most likely be some things you have to buy that you wouldn’t need to budget for if staying at home.

When moving into a new home, whether this is university halls or a private flat, it is likely that you will need to buy things you won’t have considered before such as a washing machine.

The things you need will vary dependent on what type of accommodation you choose. Some accommodation may have bills included whilst with others you’ll have to budget for them separately.

Whether you’re considering an apprenticeship or university or something else entirely budgeting is a key skill for adulthood. The next activity will give you the chance to practice your budgeting skills.
