Adult children tend to keep items at parents home for far too long

Most parents give their kids some leeway when it comes to keeping their stuff at home in "storage" after they move out for the first time, but some parents may be wondering when it is OK to take back their homes.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, this trend is occurring all around the world. Some parents opt to continue to store items like their kids' old story books and toys to one day show their grandchildren in the future, while others continue to wait until their adult children find space in their own homes for their junk.

The source reports that many people just shift the items from one room to another, rather than throw it out. However, there needs to come a time when the kids either get their stuff, put it in self storage or just get rid of it.

It may be hard for some folks to come to this realization, however one time when the topic might need to be discussed is if parents are looking to sell their homes to downsize.

Moneyville reports that recent interest in home renovation television shows has created a new urge for sellers to show a basically empty home. This means removing any personal items and instead opting for an open living area.
