  1. Saving for your rent is one of the things that could save you from getting evicted.

    Here are some tips on how you can make a budget:

    • Make a financial plan: the first thing you need when making a budget to save for an apartment is to know how much you can save or how much you would like to save and how frequently you want to save.
    • Cut your expenses: after deciding on how much you want to save, the next thing to do is to list your income and expenses. This would help you get an idea of the expenses you can reduce to be able to save more.
    • Making some compromises: saving money usually comes at the sacrifice of some things. To save for your apartment, you might decide to reduce the number of times you eat out in a month or decide to get second-hand furniture instead of a new set.
    • Set a realistic goal: one of the things that could jeopardize savings is to set an unrealistic goal. It might be totally unrealistic if you plan on saving 90 percent of your income if you are living alone.
