Clear your existing debt (instead of adding to it)

Opting in to a buy now, pay later offer might make sense in the moment, but ask yourself if that new designer necklace is really worth the drive further into debt.

Rather than accumulating debt using the extra money you’re saving from living at your parents’ house, you should be paying off what you already owe to improve your credit for future housing applications.

Paying off your debts can be intimidating, but by consolidating your debt you can save money on interest, lower your monthly payments and pay it off faster.

With Credible — an online marketplace of vetted lenders — you can shop around for debt consolidation loans to make the task of cutting down your debt manageable.

After answering a few simple questions about yourself and your finances, Credible will provide you with a list of loan rates from top lenders within minutes. You can choose which is best for you and start chipping away at the money you owe.

Need cash fast? Turn to Credible for hassle-free personal loans!

With competitive rates and transparent terms, Credible makes borrowing simple and stress-free. Whether it's for a new car, home improvement, or debt consolidation, find the perfect loan for your needs.

Save a little every day

You might already be saving on rent by living with your parents, but you should also make sure you’re putting aside some of that spare cash to eventually leave the nest.

Acorns — a saving and investing platform — is a great way to start saving money without ever having to think twice.

All you have to do is link your bank account and spend as you normally would and Acorns will round up your everyday purchases to the nearest dollar and put that change into a smart investment portfolio that suits your financial goals.

Signing up for Acorns takes less than five minutes, and you can start saving and investing for just $3 a month.

You can keep a close eye on your portfolio through the app and watch the spare change you might’ve been wasting grow into a solid fund to support your next move.
