My daughter will graduate HS tomorrow. 

Is it too early to convert her room into reloading station?

    If she does not start paying rent, no.

    When I got back from boot camp, my room was a walk in closet...

    I have 363 days until the youngest (#3) graduates HS. #1 grads college in Dec. #2 is headed to a campus and a apartment for his last 2 years in Aug.
    Losing the first deduction hurt, but when the boy moves out, the change in food bill should cover the tax loss.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    My son stops by about once a week. The food loss from those four hour visits should be tax deductible.

    Congratulations!

    Don't rush it. You'll miss her soon enough.

    Daughters are different and it sometimes takes a bit longer to gently push them outta the nest.

    Congrats!

    If you bought her a pickup as a graduation present and loaded her stuff in it, then you can claim her room for reloading.

    Congrats to the young lady.

    And NO, you should at least give her 3 months before moving your reloading equipment into her room.

    I suggest moving in 1 piece of equipment a week, until she gets the "hint"

    Is a Subaru Outback sufficient?

    I left for college, came ‘home” for Christmas and was instructed to put my stuff in the “guest room”?!?!?!?!?!  Yep, it was my old room.  Anything I didn’t take with me was thrown out or given away.  Fresh paint and a nice flower pattern bedcover to make sure it was clear to me that this was NO LONGER my room...

    Probably not for a girl, probably should have gotten her a Ryder truck off the used lot:)

    I don't think we're far from you. Wife and I are in Spokane for a grandson's graduation. Headed back to southern Oregon in the morning.

    Nope not far...Spokane is about 60 miles from Sandpoint, ID.

    Congratulations!!

    I think it took about 10 seconds for us to start remolding our son’s room when he moved out...but that was about 4 years after he graduated high school.
