What It's Like To Live In A Multigenerational Household

Modern Money Matters is Refinery29 and Chase's exploration of what the modern American family really looks like — from starting a family to moving — and what it actually costs to make it all happen.
From rent to child care and every bill in between, the cost of living can be overwhelming. Add everyday expenses into that equation, and getting by can seem nearly impossible. It’s all about thinking smart, saving money, and planning for the future. And for some, that means living in a multigenerational home — a lifestyle that Olivia Figueroa knows well. We partnered up with Chase to chat with Olivia's big family and find out the keys to their successful household.
