I graduated from college in May and moved back home while continuing the job hunt - fortunately, I found one and am due to start working in a few weeks. I'd always assumed that I would start paying rent whenever I found a job and now that that's finally happened, thank goodness (can't say that enough!!), I plan on holding up to that, since I'll be continuing to live at home for now.
My question is - how much seems reasonable? I think it'll be up to me to bring up a number, but I don't want it to be too much or too little. None of the other college grads I know that moved home are paying rent at all, so I haven't been able to compare with them.
Would appreciate hearing how others handled this situation. TIA
