I would say that the fiscally responsible thing

would be to stay home. However, its not all about waiting for shtf. If you have a good relationship with your family, then there is no reason to leave. Personally, there are times I wish that I lived with my parents still, but at the same time, I want my own stuff and my freedom. You only live for a short time on this earth and you should try to enjoy it. I have trouble sometimes balancing my fear of economic destruction and living my life care free. I would say that it is good to be prepared for an emergency, but don't waste away your life in fear. Its not worth it. I know this goes against what most say, but there is something to be said for taking care of yourself.
