Ongoing expenses: Rent

rentEarlier on I talked about the major expenses you face when you move out of home into a place of your own, whether you are living by yourself or sharing with others. Obviously, when you live by yourself you have to pay all the household expenses yourself; when you live with other people you split the bills between you. Expenses need to be discussed as soon as you decide to move in together. Usually they are shared equally, but in some cases you need to make exceptions.
