Apartment New Years Resolutions That Will Save You Money

Now’s the time to start your New Year off right. Do so by signing a lease at Arbors at California Oaks. We are conveniently located in Murrietta, CA and offer a variety of floor plan options along with luxury amenities. 


One of the most common resolutions for the New Year is saving more money. We’ve listed a few tips on how you can save money in your apartment this New Year. 



Save On Energy

To a certain degree, your energy bill is a utility that you have some control over. Here are a few ways you can cut the costs of your electric bill: 

Insulate your windows by covering them with plastic. You can remove the plastic when you leave the apartment. Bubble wrap is another great way to insulate your windows. You can also save energy by installing CFL light bulbs and make an effort to turn off lights when you are not in the room. 


Cut Back on Eating Out

Most people don’t realize how much they’re spending on dining out. A simple $10 lunch or a $35 dinner at the restaurant may not sound like a lot at the moment, however, when you consistently eat out, the costs add up quickly. Consider treating yourself to take out only on the weekends - your wallet will thank you. 


Take a Minimalistic Approach 

When it comes to decorating an apartment, most of us have a soft spot for nice-looking furniture items. We often end up buying overpriced furniture which can hurt our budgets. This New Year, consider taking a simplistic approach in your furniture choices to save some extra cash.
