Moving out of your parents’ house and starting your own adult life is a big deal. There are many people today who say that young adults don’t know much about the real world. It’s part of what has bred to the term “adulting,” otherwise known as performing tasks that normal adults do when they become independent. Here are four signs that you have officially started adulting.
When you have your own apartment or house, the bills are in your name. This means that it affects your credit, which can ultimately affect big purchases you make in the future. The digital age makes it possible to schedule automatic payments for your bills, and paying them on time will benefit you in the long run. One of the first steps to proper adulting is paying these bills on time every time.
If you live alone, laundry, cooking, and regular cleanup doesn’t happen unless you make it happen. You’ll find that you can only live off of pizza, ramen, and other fast food for so long. Little makes you feel more like an adult than cooking your own food, cleaning your own custom mug, and washing your own clothes. Some people might find these tasks to be mundane, but take pride in your shouldering of responsibility.
You can’t always spend money on a brand new dress or video game. You need to make sure you pay your bills and buy the food you need. When you start saying no to impulse buying and budgeting your money, you have really started taking the adult role seriously.
It might seem silly, but the first time you put adult address labels on an envelope, complete with your name and permanent address, there is a sense of pride and accomplishment. Your parents have cared for you for years, but there is something fulfilling about being recognized as an adult member of society. Congratulations; you have officially started adulting.
"I love the butterfly return address labels. It's so hard to find anything butterfly these days and these were perfect!! The label is larger than I thought it would be but will work fine."
"I ordered two styles of return address labels and both turned out excellent. The color in the graphics is clean and vivid. I am very satisfied with the labels Tiny Prints printed for me."
"These labels are just what I was looking for to notify our family and friends of our new address. My husband and I have one son who is 13 months old, so the family in the image does represent our family. They arrived earlier than expected."
"Using this label for not just Valentine's Day, but for everyday use! Great family label, and looks very modern romantic. Paper quality is excellent, label size is nice and big."
"I used an awesome daily deal that was emailed to me to try out the address labels and much to my suprise Tiny Prints had hundreds of adorable designs to choose from!! I picked out two and the amazing deal I got on them cannot be beat. I came back a week after I received my address labels and ordered some personalized note cards that I also got a wonderful "daily deal" on! Plus I love the emailed updates on my orders :) and very fast shipping! thanks TP!"
