My plan is to go traveling in 8 months. I’m saving some money but with this rate it’s not gonna be enough! As a friend told me the other day, I enjoy life. Most of the things you can do for fun costs money, partying till late, going short trips, eating out, nice clothes and so on. I do enjoy these things. So the question is, how can I make my travel budget as big as possible?
As you guessed it, I’m gonna cut those things to a bare minimum, I’ll do birthdays, but that’s about it. No new clothes (unless it’s for my travel plans), I’ve got enough 🙂 The only thing I will spend a bit of money on is on my mountainbike. I love the ride it through the forrest, it’s good for training my legs and working on my condition.
I’ve been thinking about other options to save up money. Here are a number of them.
- Always cook your own food, don’t go to New York Pizza or something else. It’s cheaper and must better for your health.
- I’m saving up vacation days at my work. When I will quit my job, I will have about a month of vacaction days so when I start traveling, I will get paid one more month.
- The big cost for me is just simply renting my appartment and the things that goes with it. I’m now thinking about getting out of my appartment about three months before I go traveling. I sleep in a hotel during the week, so I only need to crash somewhere for the weekend. This will save a lot of money.
Do you have any other suggestions to save for my travel budget? Please let me know in the comments! maybe we can help eachother 🙂
