‘Cause we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
Madonna’s Material Girl is all of us. We love to own things, and we often tend to buy too much. Material things define us in a world where you need to own the right things to exist. There’s only one problem. We don’t have an infinite budget. However, that doesn’t mean you should deprive yourself of the things you love and need. You can continue to upgrade your lifestyle with all the latest luxury items you crave without the hefty price tag. Indeed, there’s something important about the human mind. It craves things, but it also grows out of love for the items it hoards. And, ultimately, in a materialistic world, we need to be able to have and discard our things without breaking the bank every time.
While you still need a vehicle to get from A to B, there’s nothing that says you should buy it. Vehicle leasing is growing in popularity for people who don’t want to compromise between quality and budget. Leasing terms tend to last for 24 to 36 months, after which you can choose whether you want to purchase the vehicle or not. You can lease brand new cars such as the 2021 Equinox at a fraction of the cost, without worrying about long-term maintenance and budget. For someone who changes their mind quickly or grows bored of the things they own, leasing is by far the best of both worlds.
Rent your furniture
Moving into a new home is expensive. Aside from removal costs, most homeowners or tenants have to worry about furniture and decor expenses. It’s not uncommon to want to update your furniture in a new property. Most people choose to leave behind some of their old items when they move out. So they can focus on maintaining the property and shaping it to their style and needs. Besides, if you need to move regularly, the last thing you want is to pack all your furniture again and again. You can instead consider renting your furniture from a specialist supplier. It can not only save you a ton of money, but it’s also hassle-free. Suppliers tend to arrange for delivery and assembly. And when you’re ready to move out, you can end your renting contract.
Not more fast fashion expenses
Sometimes, you just need to wear that dress. Whether it’s a date, a wedding vitiation or a job interview, when a girl wants to impress… well she just needs to get her hands on “the” dress. But with many wardrobe rentals around, it becomes silly to reach out to your credit card when you can borrow clothes for a fraction of the price. For anyone concerned about their ever-growing shopping expenses and the pile of unworn items, clothes renting is the best option.
We live in a materialistic world where we need to have things to define our identities. But you could have all the things you want without needing to own them. Financially, there’s a huge advantage to renting out your beloved items. Emotionally, leasing ensures you don’t have to worry about long-term commitment, so you can change your mind any time!
