Have you ever complained about not being able to furnish your just-moved-into living room, yet you find yourself with the latest designer handbag and shoes? How about jetting off to exotic islands yet coming home to a measly mattress on the floor?

Stop these expensive habits now and you may be able to complete your home in a few months. It’s okay to sometimes give in to occasional splurges, but forego these unnecessary expenses once in a while to invest in important furniture for the home. We did the math for you in these habits vs. furniture infographics:  

Four months of an iced coffee addiction can buy you a good sofa.
A single fancy designer bag can buy you an entire, fancy living room set.
One romantic vacay to Boracay for two can cost you a matrimonial bed.
