50 Ways to Leave Your Mother

Tips for moving out, settling in and surviving it all.

Kids move out of their parents' homes all the time - it's a part of growing up. With a little common sense, planning and 50 Ways to Leave Your Mother, they can avoid many of the first-time moving mistakes made by the young, the unaware and the inexperienced.

Learn solutions to living-on-your-own problems like

  • finding a place to rent that's not an "Animal House"
  • getting household furnishings for free
  • surviving moving day
  • eating cheaply and somewhat healthily
  • running out of toilet paper and other traumas
You’ve found a place to live, but there’s no way you can afford it without a couple
of roommates. There’s a lot to discuss with prospective roommates, like do you
share food, who gets the big bedroom, and how many nights in a row can their friends
crash on the couch before you get really ticked off? Will the new roommates let you
put up your string of chili pepper lights in the kitchen? It doesn’t hurt to ask, and this chapter has a lot of answers, just not that one.

Get ready to laugh and laugh and laugh!

This is a funny but realistically practical book of advice for sons and daughters considering their fist real move away from their very first "home" with Mom and/or Dad!

For example, who has ever thought to let the new renter know that "...a little bug spray, a spritz of upholstery deodorizer, an old blanket, or some duct tape will remedy most furniture flaws."

Or consider what the following words REALLY MEAN as advertised: cozy = so small you might mistake it for a closet...spacious = can fit the bed in the room and still open the door...

On and on the advice comes - hysterically funny in parts only because most readers will know from experience these scenarios but a really useful tool for those about to embark on their first home and budget which all can be summarized by that magical term, independence!

Enjoy the romp and you just might find yourself checking this resource as much as you do a cookbook or telephone book in your new abode!

Nicely done, Chris Salditt!

TCM Reviews
We have here a wonderful, small, illustrated book that is pleasantly unusual in design and carries tips for becoming independent just before bidding farewell to your mom’s house. Chris Salditt mentors young people who are about to live independently, moving in a new place, and encounter the daily life’s demands directly. Whether these are things as minor as using your tooth brush or as urgent as managing a whole life’s budget, the book offers invaluable advice. It covers relationships, choosing roommates, food matters, travel expenses, insurance, and virtually everything that keeps life running.

The tips included in the book are not only significant from practical life’s viewpoint but are also very enjoyable. Salditt speaks informally with lighthearted humor. We hear her advising us to ‘spray some disinfectant in a few strategic places-kitchen, bathroom, your armpits.’ But of course she remembers to remind us that the armpit thing is a joke.

Having successfully launched her two daughters to independence, Salditt has done a nice job by authoring 50 Ways to Leave your Mother so that those turning eighteen and moving out of their parental house do not come crying back to mom’s doorstep and hide in their funk hole for another two hundred years. And certainly, the book is not for a teenage readership only; it is for all who want to live an independent life.
