Calling all first-time renters! How has your financial situation been going? Hopefully you have adjusted well and have learned to budget fairly quickly. While money may seem tight in the beginning (monthly rent is not always cheap!) it will only get easier as you gain more experience.
If you are still looking for ways to save here and there, you have come to the right place. We have five tips that may help you save:
#1: Go green! Whether you only run full loads of dishes or you change all the bulbs in your home to CFL bulbs, you will be saving both energy and money.
#2: Embrace bargains. You do not need to spend hundreds of dollars decorating your place. Hit up bargain stores such as Target or even the Dollar Store. Hey, you should even check out yard sales!
#3: Protect your valuables. Accident are bound to happen, whether you are held liable for an injury in your apartment or your personal belongings are damaged. With California renters insurance in place, you will have back-up.
#4: Eat in! Have you used your kitchen yet? It seems easier to go out and pick up food, but take out costs will add up. It is much cheaper to hit the market and prepare your own meals.
#5: Rearrange the room. Check to see if you have a chair or couch blocking a vent. Many times, your energy bill will suffer higher costs due to poor air circulation.
Have you tackled any of these ideas yet? If not, it may be time to start! It is important to do whatever it takes to save, especially if it means paying monthly rent on time.
