7 Ways renters can save on monthly expenses

Rounding it up

  • The key is saving while renting is knowing where you can adjust your spending. Start by figuring out your spending habits.

  • Next, craft a monthly budget and set up automatic bill payments so you don’t waste money on late and overdraft fees.

  • Consider getting a roommate or two; not only can you save on rent, you can also split bills and tenant insurance, which can protect you from major expenses down the line.

  • Get a cash back credit card, so you can earn some money while spending on necessities.

  • If you want a bit of extra guidance to help you cut back on your expenses, talk to a financial coach.
