I did a bounce and I'm guessing my sisters might as well. That worked out pretty good for us. My wife and I moved into my parents house for about 2 months. I did all the yard work and dishes, cooked meals and looked for jobs. We both found some pretty quick and moved out. My parents were pretty happy having the company and having people around to do extra chores :)

They even offered to let us stay for a few years to build up a really big nest egg, but we weren't very good at thinking ahead at the time. 2 nice salaries coming in with no expenses.. that would have been nice, 95% savings rate? :)
