Get rid of unwanted stuff

Make a check on all the stuff you don’t require at all – clothing that you haven’t been wearing since ages, toys and games your kids don’t play with anymore, gadgets your husband doesn’t even remember anymore, etc. Obviously there is an emotional connection with quite many unwanted things in the house but, wouldn’t it be better to donate it to someone who really wants or needs that stuff? Get off with that emotional connect and bring a smile to someone else’s face – you will feel better.

Have a place for everything

Make sure you have a proper place for every big and small item you have in the house. Provide a space for every item that is easy to get out and put back in place. If you place a useful item at the topmost shelf, you are sure to get it down when you need it but, do you think it will be put back in place again by climbing up to the topmost shelf? No! So, have a strategic plan to place every item carefully. If you have excess of things that are actually useful to you but, you lack space, you need to make sure you have storage baskets or boxes for those items that can be nicely placed in the room where it is used without causing any inconvenience.

Make use of every corner in your house

Have you ever thought of utilizing the L-shaped corner space in every room for storage? Imagine how much space you can save if you have small triangular shelves across those L-shaped corners! It would give you space to store small items and will also make your house look neat and tidy rather than stuff placed here and there. This is especially useful in bathrooms and kitchens, where you can put the toiletries and kitchen utilities respectively neatly on the shelves in the corners.

Have smart furniture

Lots of furniture can utilize a whole lot of space in your house and can make it look cluttered. Strategize your furniture plan and be a smart shopper. Buy foldable furniture that can be put away in the corners when not in use. You can also opt for multi-purpose highly-functional furniture, which can help solve many activities with one piece of equipment. Instead of buying regular sofas, beds and stools, you can opt for those that provide space for additional storage, where you can store your seldom-used or seasonal products.

Make use of crap baskets

Now you may ask what a crap basket is. Give every member of your house an individual basket and name them as crap baskets. Ask them to place all their items into their own basket when they have no time to put it in the right place, rather than just throwing it over the bed, on the table or elsewhere. Ask them to clean up the basket every night or once in 2 to 3 days and put the items back in place. This will avoid clutter in your home and will also keep a check on who makes the most clutter in the house. J

Prefer an old construction house

New construction houses cost up to 20% more than an equivalent older construction house. Buying an old construction house with lesser features than what the market is providing now can add up to big savings. But, you also need to take care that you do not buy such an old constructed house that you need lots of further expenses to maintain it in the future.

Renovation

Rather than buying a house that has all the luxurious amenities built-in, you can buy a simpler house and do things to add up to its value. This way you can save the high amounts charged for those facilities and add things at lesser price that are as per your preferences. If you do not have as much cash in hand for now, you can even keep fixing up things as and when required and are appropriate to be done, rather than getting everything done at one go.

Opt for a different location

You know what and how much you can afford. You have a budget in hand. But, you also want to live in the best parts of the town. It is not necessary that you get a house at your price in the location you prefer. So, you need to be open to few other options for location when it comes to your budget. You can adapt to a location that you do not prefer as much but, you can’t live in a house that you can’t afford.

Know your priorities

You should make a list of what you really must have and what are the things you can do without. For example, if you are a couple looking to grow a family in the future, a two bedroom house is a must for you since your kids to-be at some point in life will need a separate room; unless you prefer shifting to another house in the next few years. But, if you think that you must have a three bedroom house, keeping in mind that you may have guests coming in for a few days and you can make them stay in the guest room. Then, this is not as necessary, unless it fits your budget comfortably. Otherwise this would just add to the price unnecessarily for a temporary comfort for few days of the year, and this is not worthwhile. Similarly, having a kitchen is a must-have. But, having a modular kitchen that does not fit in your budget, just because every other person has it, is not necessary.

Keep in mind a list of things you can have an alternative for. Prefer going in for cheaper options, but also take care that they will not cause any financial harm or further expenses to you later on. Plan out your budget and keep your priorities in mind. This will help you stay out of extra unnecessary expenses.

Balancing your choice of buying a new house with your budget is one of the biggest annoyances that you can have. You need to make some sacrifices in terms of construction, location and priorities in order to suffice both the requirements.
