The series consists of:
  • Finding an Apartment - What are the expenses of living in an apartment? What obligations come with signing on the dotted line? Is it good to have roommates?

    This video explains to first-time renters how to locate, lease, and set up an apartment while avoiding common problems. They’ll learn about dealing with rental agents, evaluating a unit’s condition, reading leases, getting renters’ insurance, having the utilities turned on, and handling the roommate option.

    Information on moving and finding furniture on a budget is also included. Viewing time: 20 minutes.

  • Managing Your Money - Money management is the key to independent living. This program puts money under a microscope as it looks at budgeting it, spending it wisely, and protecting it (and, by extension, that all-important credit rating).

    Specifics include opening a checking account, writing checks, making deposits, and balancing a checkbook; using ATM and debit cards; applying for a loan; and deciding whether to opt for a credit card - and if so, how to use it responsibly. Viewing time: 23 minutes.

  • Practical, Healthy Cooking - Moving away from home means moving away from home-cooking, too - a fact that, surprisingly, escapes many young adults new to life on their own.

    After watching this video, viewers will see how easy it can be to read a recipe, measure out ingredients, prepare all sorts of meats and vegetables, package up and store leftovers, and clean up the kitchen so everything is sanitary and neat. Kitchen safety is stressed. Viewing time: 25 minutes.

  • Shopping Smart - There’s no question about it: the grocery-shopping experience can be overwhelming! This video will guide viewers smoothly through the process of planning balanced meals, making a shopping list, clipping coupons, and setting (and sticking to!) a budget.

    Helpful tips on stretching a dollar and sidestepping supermarket gimmicks are included, and food safety is emphasized. Viewing time: 17 minutes.
