    19 Things Millennials Buy Instead Of Saving For A House

    Don't buy sandwiches because it might cost you a house.

    1. A cup of coffee.

    Why buy a house when you can pay £3.25 for a pumpkin spiced latte? After all, spending £3.25 and £325,000 are pretty much the same thing, right?

    2. Same day delivery.

    Don't get free standard delivery, it takes 3 - 5 working days. Just spend your entire life savings on same day delivery instead of saving up for a house.

    3. Subscription services.

    It costs money to be entertained. You're better off renting for the rest of your life instead of missing out on the latest series.

    4. Brunch.

    Do you know what's better than a house? Brunch. An added bonus is that you can freshen up your Insta feed. #Foodie

    5. Houseplants.

    Maybe it's for the best.

    6. Holidays.

    Mortgage who? That's so 2007. You're better off racking up endless air miles and becoming a jet setter.

    7. Taxis.

    Pay extra to have awkward small talk with the taxi driver? Yes please!

    8. Self-care.

    How dare you spend money on self-care to lead a happier life?

    9. Takeaways.

    If you spend money on takeaway then technically you don't need a kitchen (or a house).

    10. Makeup.

    You might not own a house but at least your highlight will keep you warm at night.

    11. Avocado.

    You can sleep on a pile of mushy avocados instead of owning an actual bed in an actual house. Comfort at its finest.

    12. Candles.

    Use candles to ward of the stench of people who own a house. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

    13. Skincare.

    Skin care vs a mortgage? A £400 serum is the better investment because at least that way you'll be forever young.

    14. Tech.

    Allegedly we're the only generation that uses technology.

    15. Independent restaurants.

    We're such terrible people putting smaller restaurants first.

    16. Minimalistic home decor.

    Nothing like decorating a house that will never be yours. At least it looks pretty, right?

    17. Fitness.

    It makes sense. I mean we need all the strength to hurl avocados at people blaming us for everything.

    18. Sandwiches.

    Yes because the price of one sandwich is equivalent to one house.

    19. Rent.
