If You’re a New Grad, Can You Actually Afford to Live Alone?

You can only have your leftover lo mein eaten by your roommates so many times before you start to curse communal living. And for the legions of recent grads who are moving on from college dorms this spring, living alone may sound like a dream come true. But is it financially feasible?

Locking down a job is the first step to determining your rent budget.

(If you Liberal Arts majors nearly choked on your lunch at that number, keep in mind that careers in the science, technology, engineering and math-related fields have much higher starting pay. In fact, the average pay for entry-level software developers is $67,236!)

With kids, the problem is drastically multiplied and getting out the door in the morning can quickly turn into a stomach-churning, bags-flying nightmare.

In addition to strategies like having backpacks and—if we can swing it—lunches ready to go the night before, we have one simple rule in my house that quells the frenetic morning energy:
