Who seriously considers moving back in with parents?! Really?!

I did it, the bought a house. Traveled every week flexed a few times a month and couch surfed on party weekends.

I moved back in with my mom after college and moved out when I got married. It wasn't a hard decision. I only came home to do free laundry 🤗

I only came home during some weekends to do free laundry*
