What Makes You A True "Adult"?

A new survey asked 2,000 people to rank the top 50 things that officially make you an "adult."  We're on board with most of them.  Although "knowing how to change a LIGHT BULB" at #28 sets the bar a little low.  Here's the top ten . . .

  

1.  Paying your own bills.

 

2.  Doing your own laundry.

 

3.  Having a budget.

 

4.  Moving out of your parents' place.

 

5.  Having insurance.  Apparently that means any type of insurance.

 

6.  Buying a house.

 

7.  Making your own financial decisions without asking Mom and Dad.

 

8.  Paying into a retirement account.

 

9.  Keeping your house clean.

 

10.  Buying groceries REGULARLY instead of stocking up once a month.

 

 

Having kids just missed the top ten at #11 . . . buying a vacuum cleaner, #22 . . . following politics, #27 . . . your parents asking YOU for advice, #39 . . . making to-do lists, #43 . . . and getting your own pet made the list at #48.

 

 

The survey also found we don't feel like an adult until we're 25.
