One of the important first steps before deciding to rent a boarding house is to make a budget plan. This involves calculating how much it costs to rent a boarding house, as well as other costs such as electricity and water, transportation costs, monthly shopping, as well as personal and educational needs.
By determining a budget plan you will have a clearer picture of your monthly and even annual expenses. So you can control your finances better and avoid waste and unexpected expenses.
2. Check the boarding house facilities

Before you sign the rental contract, it’s a good idea to carry out a thorough inspection of the physical condition of the boarding house you will be staying in.
Check the electrical system and make sure all outlets and lights are working. Also check water taps, heating or air conditioning systems, and kitchen appliances such as stoves and ovens.
If you find a problem, immediately report it to the owner or property agent so that it can be repaired before you move. This will help you avoid complications that may arise later.
3. Choose the Best Location

The location of the boarding house is an important factor in your daily life. Make sure Beauties choose a location that suits their needs.
Is it close to work, campus or shopping center? Is there easy access to public transportation?
A strategic location will help you save time, money and energy, so you can focus more on your daily activities without having to face long and tiring trips. And also ensure that the location is safe from floods and landslides to avoid the dangers of natural disasters.
4. Prepare Basic Equipment and Supplies

When you start boarding house life, make sure you have compiled a list of the basic tools and equipment needed. This includes plates, glasses, spoons, forks, pots, pans, cooking utensils, thermos, as well as cleaning equipment such as brooms, brushes and other cleaning equipment.
By having this equipment, you can easily cook meals at home and save money that you might spend on eating out.
5. Save an Emergency Fund

Life doesn’t always go according to plan, and sometimes Beauties may face various emergency situations that require extra funds.
Therefore, start managing your finances wisely, such as having enough emergency savings to deal with urgent situations such as urgent repairs or replacing damaged equipment. This emergency fund will be an important financial protection to face uncertainty in life.
