If you’re saving for a house but it feels like it’ll never happen, there are a few things you can do to help you save more.
Saying goodbye to old habits and doing without a few home comforts for a while could boost your cash by £3,000 a year. Multiply that by five, and you’re £15,000 closer to your deposit.
TOTAL SAVINGS (APPROX) = £3,000 per year.
And there you have it. Cutting back on a few non-essentials could make a huge difference to your deposit and potentially get you on the property ladder even sooner than you expected.
