Tip #1: This tip is pretty simple but probably the most important one out of the ones I'm going to give you, hence why it's tip #1. The tip is: know what you do AND don't NEED. Knowing both of these things will help you for the other tips to follow. Plus knowing both of these things will help you know how much money you'd be saving.
Focus on the need first and the want later because if you end up spending more money on a want, it'll seem like a waste compared to spending money on something you need; something you know you'll get the use out of it. In other words, making the needs come first really puts the "worth every penny" quote to good use. Whatever you have left, use it for a want.
Tip #2: Now that you know what it is you do and don't need you can focus on the do's. Knowing your do's can help you decide which is better to spend money on and which is better to save. Obviously this pertains to your personal taste but there are a few key features that are worth the money and those are: sink, shower/tub, toilet.
Faucets can also go in that category but once again it depends on the individual person. Everything else you can find budget-friendly options, unless you're willing to spend the money on what you need. For instance if you want authentic wood flooring and you're willing to spend the money for it then go for it, or you can find wood tiles that mimic the look of wood and also save money by going with that option.
Tip #3: Keep stuff unless you absolutely don't want to. Following this tip can really help save money by once again spending money what you need and what's important. For example, If you originally wanted to redo the flooring but want to cut down the price of the remodel, really and honestly think if it's important to redo the floors now or if it can be done at a later time and so on.
One huge key to remember is to try not to move plumbing because that can seriously become expensive, especially if it's a two-story house and the plumbing is being done on the second floor. You can create a beautiful new bathroom without changing the layout/plumbing. What some people don't realize is that putting in new cabinets, countertops, flooring, etc. can really make a difference on a bathroom. Unless it's necessary and you're willing to pay, plumbing isn't as important as say picking the right countertop that will go with your cabinets.
Once you follow all those tips, you can see that knowing them is just as vital as following other money saving tips. Hope this helped!
