Moving into a new apartment in 2020? Moving into a new apartment can be a thrilling experience. After all, it’s the first step to being on your own and you have a new community to explore!
Apartments are also a great way to save money. Monthly rent is typically cheaper than a home mortgage, plus you don’t have to spend money on maintenance, lawnmowers, and having to furnish an entire home.
Want to save even more money? Here are a few more ways to save money in your new apartment.
When the average person gets into their new apartment, they want to immediately go crazy and decorate every aspect of it. While this seems like a fun idea, it’s not very easy on your wallet.
Home decor can quickly become expensive if you aren’t careful. It doesn’t help that the more you that you buy, the harder it will be to take it with you when you’re ready to move out.
The best thing to do is start small and just buy a few essentials. As you stay in the apartment, you can continue to add a few more things here and there to spice up the rooms a little.
Buying used furniture on Facebook Marketplace is a great way to save some dough and furnish your apartment!
Invest in Multitaskers
Instead of buying an item that only does one thing, invest in items that can be used to do many things when they’re needed to. By killing two birds with one stone, you can free up apartment space and save up money.
For example, pick out a sofa that can also double as a bed, so you don’t have to buy them both. Or rather, get a coffee table that doubles as a storage bin. You could even opt for a blender that can make smoothies, juice, and other treats.
Over the past few years, cable TV has become very expensive. Instead of spending over $100 per month on cable, subscribe to online services such as Netflix or Hulu. For under $20 per month, you can have both and stream your favorite shows on your schedule.
