There is often a post within a thread about the sacrifices (usually on 'older' generation) made to get on the property ladder. My partner and I sold our second car so we could save our deposit as were weren't getting anywhere paying 2 car loans plus rent. This meant trains to work and car pooling etc. We also had practically zero money for entertainment - I remember walking to the library on the weekends and our biggest treat was a custard tart from the local bakery. I'll never forget the freezing winter we spent in front of a 2-bar heater, of which one bar didn't work that my mum had given us... Our first house was a 2 bedder 1940's place with original carpet. Nothing flash but it was ours So, what did you sacrifice?
