A survey asked 2,000 people to rank the top things that officially make you an “adult.”Here are the top 10 things you need to do:
- Pay your own bills
- Do your own laundry
- Have a budget
- Move out of your parent’s house
- Have insurance
- Buy a house
- Make your own financial decisions without asking Mom and Dad
- Pay into a retirement fund
- Keep your house clean
- Buy groceries REGULARLY instead of stocking up once a month
If you do the above things you’re considered an adult. Also on the list:
Having kids is #11, buying a vacuum cleaner is #22, following politics is #27, changing a light bulb is #28, your parents asking YOU for advice is #39, making to-do lists is #43 and getting your own pet made the list at #48.
The survey also found we don’t feel like an adult until we’re 25.
I know people who do all the above but I wouldn’t consider them adults…I bet you do as well ~ chrislukas
