I would suggest you stay, for several reasons.  First, you have a bit more flexiblity at your folks.  (I am only assuming that your folks will watch the little one occasionally here, so I may be wrong)  With them able to watch the little one, you can go to the gym together which always makes loosing weight easier when you have someone doing it with you.  Second, obviously saving more money faster is always better.  Third, moving in the fall you will pay the most money.  Mid winter January-Febuary, even though it sucks to move at that time, it is the low season for moving and apartment companies are giving the best deals. (I used to manage apartments).

I know it sucks living with the folks, I know I couldn’t go back to doing it, but in the long run, it really may be the key to making sure you get the best foot forward when you enter into your new life.

Good Luck, let us know how it goes.

I say stay, because once you find a place, you gotta deal with deposits and setting up all your utilities, which costs money. Also, you might have to get furniture, washer, dryer, big things like that. I guess you can have a party for housewarming and hopefully get dishes and stuff, but if you stay at your parents, you can save for the wedding AND save for the move out. And if people give your wedding gifts, that’s the same as getting housewarming gifts. I say combine that to add less stress on your loved ones and their wallets, so they don’t have to get a wedding and a housewarming gift.
