Thrifty blogger who bought her first home at 23 WITHOUT the bank of mum and dad reveals the tricks that helped her save a £30K deposit (including digging out your old piggy bank)

  • Jade Vanriel, 25, bought her property in Essex aged just 23 with no help
  • Saved up enough for a deposit on a two-bedroom …

Admitting that she was forced to cut back on partying, taxis and clothes shopping, Jade told how simple tricks such as bringing in her food and coffee to work helped realise her dream

Jade Vanriel, 25, a law graduate and interior designer, managed to save a deposit of £30,000 over seven years, explaining how she worked from the age of 16 alongside studying

Jade, who boasts 30,000 followers on her YouTube channel and almost 10,000 followers on Instagram, posted a video giving a 12-step-guide on saving

Jade advised to start by deciding on the price of your property, taking into consideration the area and size (her lavishly decorated sitting room is seen)

The vlogger suggested setting up your deposit goal and savings plan next, opting for monthly direct debits into high interest ISA accounts (Jade's bathroom seen)

The law graduate advises looking at your spending habits and seeing where you can cut costs. She took her lunch and coffee into work to save money (her balcony seen before renovation)

Jade even suggested looking at weekly or yearly saving charts, saving £1 per week then adding £1 for the preceding weeks (her balcony seen after its makeover)

The young entrepreneur even advised moving into smaller rented accommodation or back home while you save

Another tip for those unable to save as much as they'd like was to consider shared ownership schemes

For those who were hoping to buy sooner she suggested looking into a A Help To Buy equity loan

Jade urged people to start saving sooner than later, advising that it would just become more difficult

Sharing her golden rule with young people, she said: 'Remember when it comes to saving: It's all about delayed gratification, not instant gratification'
