Congratulations! You’ve decided to make a few changes around your home and plan a renovation. First things first: how are you planning on paying for it? If you’re not trying to take out a bunch of home loans, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways you can start funding your home improvement project!

Make Lifestyle Changes

If you sit down and calculate a few things, you’ll probably notice you’re spending a lot of money, unnecessarily, that could be used towards funding your home improvement project. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How often do I eat out?
  • How much am I spending on drinks with friends?
  • Am I getting my money’s worth on that gym membership?

Making a few lifestyle changes, such as eating and working out at home and skipping out on the booze more often can end with a lot more money in your pocket that could pay for your home project.

Garage Sales

You probably have a lot of stuff lying around your home that you don’t want, need, or use — but someone else could.  Hold a garage sale to raise some funds for your project and clear out your home at the same time. Not keen on a garage sale? There are plenty of apps that allow you to sell your stuff for a profit.

Get a Second Job

While this one requires a bit more work and time, getting a “side hustle” can help you earn enough cash to pay for your home improvement projects without having to take money out of your regular paycheck.

Even taking the weekends to work at a local restaurant or drive for a rideshare company can help you cover project costs.
