Hey everyone. Due to family issues (which I will not bother getting into), I will be moving out on my own for the first time on September 1st. I am 18, currently finished 1 year of university and starting the second in September. I would like to tap into the SF hivemind for advice regarding all the new experiences I will face when living on my own. And in case it matters, I will be living alone, not with roommates. Some specific things I would like some guidance on: (1) Items that I should be sure to bring/have around the house. Like cleaning supplies, etc, not furniture. I will be doing a lot of thinking/research before I move, but I would appreciate a comprehensive list of things I will need/may forget to buy. (2) A list of meals that can be learned/prepared relatively easily and inexpensively. I am certainly not on the foodie level of many of the members here, and I can barely grill a hamburger, so you are aware of how low of a level I am starting from. (3) Tips for dealing with various situations that I may not have encountered before in life, and may not know how to deal with if/when they occur when living on my own. (4) Any other tips/advice you may have for me. Thanks in advance for the help, and if you need to know any more info about myself, just ask.
