When I moved to the UK and rented my first room, I wasn’t in slightest thinking of a way to become a homeowner or get to a property ladder. Because How? I was working as a waitress with a weekly salary that was perfectly covering my rent and basic food. If I got extra tips, this went to clothes and basic needs(read. parties!) Yes, I was a free spirit, a late teenager and not an adult yet. It didn’t even cross my mind, that perhaps I should be saving for my future. I was living the day by day. I met my boyfriend and we moved together. I focused on my education, blowing every single penny on a transport, books and other educational needs. Once I have finished my University, we moved to Manchester where we rent an apartment close to city centre. Living year after a year, the idea of a own home start growing in my head. Then I became the adulter adult; as fellow blogger used to say. Having a huge debt from University, it wasn’t very helpful with the idea of saving. My rescue was IKEA Live Lagom to pay off my debt, but more about this on my next post. Once, I actually managed to pay the debt off, I am now on the urge to save up for the deposit. I started researching and looking for ideas how to achieve this goal. (featured Image Image Source )
