Finding the time to go travelling, unless business related is just so difficult. We worry about taking a step back in our career plans, whether our family will need us and how we can find the money to fund our plans. In reality, though, careers will always be there when we get back and family really wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on the adventure of a lifetime. That just leaves the money but read through my guide on how to save money and you could even sort that one.
Open a dedicated savings account
The first thing you need to do is make it official, you are going to save towards your travel plans. Do this by opening a savings account explicitly with that purpose in mind. Make a pact with yourself, that this money will be your travel fund, it is not for anything else. Take a look at the best savings rates available and choose the account which will give you the most.
Cut out unnecessary expenses
Stop buying that coffee every day or a new outfit for every occasion and put all that extra money towards your travel fund. When you do need to make purchases, make sure you spend some time researching and choosing the right product at the best price. You can head to the reviews section on my website to see if there are existing reviews on items you might need to purchase to help you make the right choices.
Sell your stuff
If you plan on going travelling there might be furniture or other bits and pieces that you won’t need until you get back. You could consider selling them, either online or at a car boot sale in order to make a bit of extra cash to put into your funds. If you really can’t bear to part with items, you might need to put them into storage. Visit website for more information about storing your belongings.
It’s not easy but the only way to really save is to cut back on that spending. It might mean turning some invites down or thinking a bit more carefully about what food you buy. You could also think about turning the thermostat at home down a notch or two or really cutting back on your electricity bill. Living frugally can be extremely tough but it can be the key to you going off on your dream adventure. You can learn a lot by reading about how other savers manage to put away large chunks of money.
Follow travel deal accounts on Twitter
To really achieve your dreams you need to be in the know about what is available on the holiday market. You might not have the money for it right now, but if you start to do your research now you will not only be able to estimate how much money you will need to make your dreams come true but will also know all the best places to go to once you do have the money. Twitter is a really good place to do this because you can see all the deals instantly in your feed without too much work on your part.
