Are you talking about charging a relative? Or is this just someone staying with you? We charged both DS's after they left school and had a job. We based it on their salary and what all was to be included in "room and board". Then when they moved out on their own we gave them all the room and bored monies they had been paying us. They were able to use it on deposits for ultilities, apts, and such that way. Thye never knoew we were going to do that so they saved up for those things themselves; this way they had unexpected cash to work with.
