Crossing the threshold to your first home is one of the most exciting moments in a young person’s life... until that first mortgage payment is due. Then the heating bill. And the electric. And the taxes. Let’s face it. Home-ownership can be pricey, especially when you’re a newbie.
For those still adjusting to the new financial responsibilities that come with home-ownership, there are lots of easy ways to save money by cutting back on some of the expenditures you didn’t think twice about as a renter. Try some of the following ideas, and start building a cushion for home maintenance, new furniture, or adding on a deck.
Saving money is easier than you think - and can actually open the door to a more enjoyable way of life. And the nest egg you’ll start building will help make you a smarter, happier homeowner.
