This tip comes from my reader Naomi…
If you are renting and want to do any improvements to where you live… STOP! Well, at least until you ask the owners if they will pay for the supplies!
Recently, we decided to stay in our current apartment longer than we had originally planned so we wanted to make it a better living experience. Last summer our apartment would get so HOT from all the lovely windows we have (which are very old), so my husband wanted to insatall window tint to help cut down the heat.
I wasn’t too happy at first about the idea, because it was obviously going to cost us money. I thought it over for a day or two and then called our apartment manager and asked if they would foot the bill. He said “Of course!”
Now we have tinted windows that only cost us about an hour or two of our time to install.
Most managers/owners want tenants to stay longer, especially if they are good tenants, so if you are willing to do some work then I will bet they will gladly pay!
