  • Consider buying a home

Surprisingly, in some areas, you can really save money by buying a house instead of renting. You can buy uncompleted or semi-completed houses and fully furnish one or two rooms plus the toilet and kitchen then you work on the completing the whole house step by step.

  • Look for a job at a lower cost of living area

These days, most manufacturing companies are setting up their office in the outskirts areas. You can either ask for a transfer and find a new job in such areas and come to the city for relaxation during the weekends.

Moving to an area with a lower cost of living can mean that you do not have to work as much.

It may mean more time, and it often means that you can afford a really nice house for a lot less. It is definitely an option that you should consider.
