1. Solar panelsMost home owners are not aware that solar panels can be rented. While saving money by lowering energy bills, you can also leave extra cash in your bank account through a lease agreement rather than a purchase. A lease will eliminate the cost of installation and maintenance on solar panels. Cost varies from company to company, however a lease is definitely worth exploring in order to save money for the stuff you really want. Related: "4 Tips for 2018 Summer Buyers"
2. Comfy CouchMany up and coming furniture retailers are offering lease programs for that comfy couch you've always wanted, but could never afford. Furniture rental for a home owner might sound a bit strange, however when you stop to consider the expenditure of $50 a month to fully furnish a bedroom verses thousands of dollars expended on furniture that will eventually need to be replaced, this particular option does not seem so unusual after all. In addition, furniture rental companies will deliver and assemble their own furniture at no extra cost to you.
3. Rent ChristmasNo kidding! You can actually rent a LIVE Christmas tree! Living Christmas Company actually delivers your selected Christmas tree right to your front door. Your beautiful tree will arrive in a large container where it will live until the next Christmas season when someone else decides to rent the same tree. In the event that your tree outgrows its container, the company will plant the tree in a large field and replace it with a smaller one in the container where your former tree once resided. You could rent your next Christmas tree for as little as $54. That is quite a savings from the average price of $120-$180 consumers elect to spend on Christmas trees annually.
