My newest decision that I need to make about my move is if I want to flat-share of if I want to get a place of my own right away. Originally my only thought was to get my own place but the more I think about it, as time gets closer (and money gets tighter) I'm thinking maybe I want to share a place with 2 or 3 other people. The biggest pro about moving into a flat-share is that I will save money on rent and bills than if I lived alone. The biggest con being zero privacy. Another pro is, although I know a few people over there, if I move in with people I wont be completely alone once I am settled in. The options I have been weighing seem to be that flat-sharing might be the best thing. I'm thinking about doing it for about 6 months, then I will be able to save some money and look for my own place. If I really like it I also have the option to stay.
Just curious, what do you think is the best idea?
