Not everyone has the ability to live the luxury life, and not everyone wants to live that kind of lifestyle. However, if you want to live a more luxury life, even if you’re on a budget, there are ways to do it. You just need to learn how to be wise with your money and how to make it appear you have more of it than you really do.
You don’t have to be rich to look rich, you just have to know how to put on that air. Here are some tips for at least feigning a luxury life, and saving some money while you look like you’re spending a lot of it.
Get A Condo
If you want a home that makes it look like you have more money than you may actually have it pays to invest in a condo. Condos are a great investment for someone that wants home ownership but doesn’t care about close neighbors or having a lawn.
You may pay a pretty penny to own your condo, but it’s yours and you can do with it what you want. Condos are usually newer, so they have fewer issues than a normal house. Plus, condos are generally located in the heart of a city or at least have some great views for those that dwell in them.
Be Smart With Your Money
Get wise with your spending and you’ll have more money for the things you really want. Save money when grocery shopping by buying more fresh items or hitting up the farmer’s market when it’s open. Save money on clothing by going for a more vintage look.
Cut back on bills by finding ways to be more green. You may also want to start investing money so you can start building more from it in the future, which may actually lead you to a truly rich (in money) life, as opposed to just pretending.
Opt For Earth Friendly
You can save money to spend on other stuff if you opt to be more green. Plus, being more earth-friendly makes you look savvier as well. Consider skylights for added lighting to your home, and invest in solar or wind energy to cut back on your energy costs and your carbon footprint.
Start recycling, if you don’t already. Grow your own fruits and vegetables, and compost your garbage to use as fertilizer in your garden. Growing some of your own food will save you money on groceries and it allows you more gourmet meals from “farm to table.”
Shop Smart And Vintage/Used
If you want a style that makes you look luxurious, start dressing more in a classy or vintage style. Instead of stepped out into the club in the same thing twenty other people are wearing, get creative with your clothes and get thrifty All styles come back after a few decades, so hold onto anything that’s ever been a fad!
What’s more luxurious than looking like you just stepped off the runway in something that nobody else can find on the store shelves?
