Moving out from my parents' home and moving to a whole new town for college meant a huge deal to me, not only because I was throwing myself into a completely new situation of life and starting something that I've never known before, but also because I had much more responsibilities then and I only slowly realized how serious it actually was.
A very important and at times problematic point was that I had to take care of my own finances. I didn't have to deal with all of that before as my mother would take care of the finances in the household and just teached me how much money I could or could not spend. She was the one planning how much and what groceries to buy, she was the one paying the bills for our home, for our education, for electricity, the Internet.
And then I started my own household in my very own flat and kind of went crazy. I was terrible at my spendings and constantly felt bad. I don't have a shopping addiction or anything but I kind of just lost the control over the money that I had and the money that I gave away.
