First-Time Renter: Splurge Versus Save

Moving into your first apartment on your own can be a very exciting moment, but the thought of furnishing the entire place can get a little overwhelming. The good news is that it is all doable with a little patience and a budget. If you are unsure about which items to splurge or save on, no problem. Here are a few tips to help you create your perfect apartment without emptying your checkbook!


A dedicated space for meals.
It does not have to be expensive or even designer, just something appropriate for your space. Think versatility when buying your table so that you can use if for eating, work, crafting or meetings. A kitchen table does not just have to be for meals.

A cozy bed.
Gone are the pre-college days of air mattresses and mattress pads. Celebrate your adulthood by splurging on a comfortable bed. After juggling long hours at work or in classes, a place to sleep is much welcomed. Besides you need all the beauty rest you can if you are going to keep up with that social calendar!

A beautiful set of glasses.
Hopefully, gone are the days of boxed wine and red plastic cups! When you are adulting you need to have a full set of drinking glasses.  Remember, you will need something to hold when you cheer’s yourself for moving in successfully!
