3 Money Saving Ways To Get Yourself Set Up In Your First Home

3 Money Saving Ways To Get Yourself Set Up In Your First Home
Today we are going to be looking at a few ways you can make your first-time move easier and hopefully a little more affordable.

Moving into your very first home can be a scary process, no matter how prepared you are. Sometimes we all need a little helping hand. Whether it’s moving furniture or even purchasing things for your home, it is daunting. Today we are going to be looking at a few ways you can make your first-time move easier and hopefully a little more affordable.

Have A Party

Although you probably think that this is the worst advice ever, you are thinking of the wrong sort of party.

You could, however, consider a decorating party. These things can be brilliant and can save you an absolute fortune when it comes to decorating. This is exactly what you do, and you invite as many people as you want to go and help you decorate. In the way of thank you for them coming around, you can keep them fed and happy. The part where you save some money is here; you ask them all if they have any leftover paint.

Then when the paint arrives, get mixing! You may find you have acquired a fantastic touch for your new home and some incredible colours. You may think this is a crazy idea, but if you invite ten people and they all bring 1-2 tins of leftover paint, you have enough paint to cover your house twice over, size dependent. 

Furniture

You could, of course, go for second-hand equipment and start shopping on eBay or your local used adverts. There is, of course, no shame in doing this when funds are tight. In fact, it’s a great way of keeping perfectly good items out of a landfill.

Another option is rental. Furniture and electronic rentals are still incredibly popular. It will work out a lot cheaper than buying, which is vital after you have just emptied your account on your first home. Companies like Difrent Rental offer a great selection of items and of course, with a rental you get protection and guarantee that you won’t get from pre-owned goods.

Don’t Overdo Things

One thing you will quickly realise when moving into your first home is that it is very easy to get carried away. Creating a monthly budget after your first month or two will allow you to always live within your means. The biggest shock that comes when moving out for the first time is just how much it costs. 

Even though you think you have budgeted the costs carefully will always seem higher than you prepared. It is a good idea to minimise luxury subscriptions and take out food in the beginning, just until you are back to being financially stable. 

Taking into account all of the above will help you make it through your first year in your new home. It may be difficult from time to time, but it will be worth it in the end.
