Figured out my 2020 renter budget plan

Can save you the time trawling through the internet - I made a spreadsheet of ‘Top Tips’ for renters to save money.

Number one tip? Get a room-mate. Though my favourite tip has to be “Don’t buy expensive furniture/objects” :cry:


I have not followed… any of this advice.

“Don’t rent without a job in place”, when I moved overseas twice, I did this both times.

There has to be a more realistic way to budget, I’m bored of these articles about how the answer is not buy a coffee. I want to live and be caffeinated!

Does anyone have any real tips? Mine is to use freecycle, it’s actually a great way to get free things but it does mean that you trade in time looking of things.
