It's always great to have dinner on your plate waiting for you in the microwave or oven when you come back from a hard days of work or school.

We get help from our families until we find a job in my country. And we don't mind if our sons/daughters live in our house if there isn't any economic issue

I heard, in Japan people look after their sons/daughters until death and if their son/daughter becomes hikikomori they put down food in front of their son's/daughter's room door

Interesting. Things would be pretty different here, for most. My parents would make me get outta my room.

I lived downtown during undergrad and went back home during the summers. Now that i'm in Grad school, I have moved permanently downtown.

I could never live at home full time again. I love my parents but they're not positive people. My parents have told me they'd be happy if I lived at home, but I know how negative they can get so I refused politely.

However, I know some people who live with their families until their late 20's by choice and both sides enjoy it mutually.

well they gotta pay bills sooner or later, why wait and you bring up a good point with jobs since the recession kinda screwed things over

see this is a good reason to still live with your parents, but if your still trying to live off them then its not right

honestly alot has changed in recent years

20 years ago you can raise a family on a one income household

now a days most families have both parents working because of the house prices, mortgage payments, gas and food prices, overall everything cost more, especially when it comes to sports when you can only take your family once a year to hockey game because it can run you into a thousand dollar bill

Its just tough out htere, I don't blame people for staying at home with there parents saving some extra cash, in the long run it would be a big help for there futures, I think more parents should do this for there kid, it not only helps there own kids but there grand kids

its just a personal opinion, I agree there are alot of ways doing things, everyone has there own ways its all good, thats why we live in Canada

sometimes i think people waste money on things they dont really need, like do you really need to live in a big house, or could a semi detached work do the same thing for you or do you really need that expansive car or will a used car be better

I think a lot of people waste money on ridiculous things they don't need or they buy something greater than their needs.

I have no problem with people buying something better than the basic need but it always floors me when people pay money for things far in excess of the items actual functionality.

For example:

Purse A-
A plastic bag. Cost: 5 cents

Purse B-
Moderate quality purse. Cost $100 (roughly)

Purse C-
High end purse, cost $1,500 (roughly).

I can understand the justification moving A to B. You are buying something that looks nicer, has more durability, will last longer, more pockets, can be closed firmly, has more capacity, can be carried on a shoulder.

It's the people that purchase purse C I don't understand. You gained a lot of functionality for $99.95 by moving from A to B.

What functionality do you get for your extra $1,400 dollars by moving from B to C. What justifies that increased cost?

I think a lot (not all) of people that buy luxury goods buy then to make themselves feel awesome not because the item itself is actually awesome. I find that rather sad.

Disclaimer- I did not pick purses to start a whole "women are the culprits" claim here. I just find it is a lot easier to go with this example then a car or electronics which vary so heavily in the capabilities.

it's justified by image, not by utility. in a social context that celebrates image and wealth as much if not more than functional worth, this isn't surprising.

I have this conversation so much. Again the other day, in fact.

I don't get it. I know people who spend obscene amounts of money for something that they could've bought (in a different brand) at 90% less than what they paid.

Even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I could never justify that. I'd still look for good prices and well-made stuff.

And for the record... I've never paid more than $40 for a purse. Ha.

I understand that it is justified by image but I find that sad. People are trying to buy their image.

All that leads to is requiring you to by the next thing to maintain that image.

You end up in a never-ending "buy" cycle because you need to buy your image, because you don't have another identity to cling on to.

THOSE PEOPLE should move back home haha

Funny you mention purses because I know people just like that ... the ones who spend over $1,500 on a designer purse AND live at home. I get the ones who live at home in order to save money so that they can put a nice downpayment on their own home. It's definitely the ones who spend ridiculous amounts of money on designer items when a less expensive one will more than suffice that I don't get.

I have 2 lovely purses each worth about $200 ... both were birthday presents where the parents and the in-laws pooled their money to get me a nice gift.

My girlfriend and I set a limit of 350 dollars to spend on each other last Christmas after we figured we'd be breaking the bank on our son. I gave her a list of a bunch of practical stuff I needed for my recording studio. She wanted one item - a Coach purse. I tried to talk her out of it. I went with her friend to the Falls and to that hell hole known as the Canada One Factory Outlet which was stuffed full o' crazy chicks looking at overpriced fare. It was, without a doubt, one of the hardest retail actions I've ever had to perform - plunking down 350 dollars (regular price, 500!) for a freaking purse.

End o' rant.
