Let’s be real. Renting sucks. Having your rent go up every year sucks too. Moving almost every year because of the increasing rent is a pain in the you-know-what. And being limited in what you can do in your rental restricts you from truly having a home that represents you.
So what can you do about it? Well let me ask you this… are you willing to make some sacrifices to get what you want? What about staying in on the weekends and keeping it low-key instead of dishing out $100 (or more!) to go clubbing and purchasing $20 watered-down drinks. Or only spending cash and living within your means instead of maxing out your credit cards and only paying the minimum? If this sounds doable, then maybe you are ready to make some sacrifices and save for your first home.
Here are some ways you can save for your first home and stick to your goals. You’ll be glad you did in the long-run.
