I can totally relate to how you feel, but having moved out of my mom's house (also stayed with my gran for awhile) when I was 18, I can tell you it's not all moonsine and roses like it seems when you are planning it. I must admit owning your own car wil help a great deal, but there are so many responsibilities that you don't realise before moving out, that you need to have a strong relationship, be very level headed, and in a good position to support yourself, before taking a step like this, are you really ready?

Oh, I definitely think you should stay at your grans. Start yourself up a substantial savings account. Further your career. After awhile use your savings to put a downpayment on a house, and moving expenses. Own the house all on your own, unless you are married at the time. Don't share your investment with your bf.
