7 TIPS HOW TO SAVE MONEY FOR TRAVELLING IN 2020!

FIND OUT HOW TO savE BUNCH OF money for travels.

Nowadays, travelling is easier than ever. Infrastructures are better than ever before and so are the prices.

You really don’t have to be a rocket scientist to find a cheap flight tickets or affordable transport connections.

Websites such as: Skyscanner and Exepedia can help you in finding great travel deals!

I’m not rich but I do travel often. I believe that money spent on teeth and travel is the best money spent. And food too! 🙂

Exploring is free but you have to pay attention on some details.

 

1. SET YOUR PRIORITIES

 

You will never be able to travel a lot if you keep spending money on stuff. Forget about consumerism. Forget about bunch of clothes, make up, home items and details, luxury items – you don’t need all that.

If travelling is your priority, make sure you always keep repeating it to yourself so you don’t end up spending printed numbers on something else.

I have to admit that I save bunch of money by keeping myself away from buying unnecessary things. Yes, I am a woman and yes I do have plenty of wishes, but my main wish is to travel. It will probably be hard in the beginning, but you will get on track fast! 🙂

I advise you to use, for instance, reminders or visual board to constantly have those goals in your mind as a daily push forward.

2. START COOKING

 

Yes, that’s right! By cooking at home, you are saving huge amount of money too. So try as much as you can eat at home. Prepare the food in advance for those days when you are extremely busy. Besides, you can always freeze it. Moreover, it’s much better and healthier to eat at home.

If you don’t have any dish inspiration, there’s a super cool site called: Supercook , where you can add ingredients from your kitchen and see all the receipts that contain them!

I know cooking can be totally tiring, but hey – you need money for travelling, right!?

3. GET A PIGGY BANK

Not only you should get a piggy bank for yourself, but piggy bank for your family and friends too.

Birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s day, Anniversaries…instead of buying presents, let everyone be part of your travel funds.

4. GIVE UP YOUR BAD HABITS

We all have at least one, don’t we?

So the New Year’s goal can be exactly that – giving up one of your bad habits. Whether it’s a shopping, smoking, beauty treatments, drinking, gym, video games, gambling, overeating, sweets…just try to quit one costly (or non costly but any) habit for a few months, see how it goes and in the end calculate how much money did you saved.

You’ll be amazed how much you can save there – one plane ticket at least!

5. REUSE – LESS IS MORE

Reusing is such a huge act!

Basically, it means that a certain product is used again in the same form and for the same purpose. It’s not only the best way to save the money, but to stop waste too. Plus, it saves bunch of resources! Single-use items are permanent products that become trash after only minutes of use. Try to do your best to choose reusable.

In fact, the choice is huge and I can give you few examples: repair clothes or buy at second hand stores, use washable cloths, napkins and rechargeable batteries, take your cloth-made-bag to groceries store and reusable mug for a coffee as well, insulated-steel-water-bottle instead of buying plastic bottles of water, reuse containers and other materials for storage food etc.

 

6. SHARE, RENT OR SELL

We all probably have at least one tool, machine or even few items that we don’t use on a regular basis or most likely ever.

Think about it for a second.

Next step: consider sharing them with people you know: friends, neighbors or simply advert it online. It will definitely help someone plus it’s some extra money for your travels!

For instance, it can be even your scooter or tripod!

7. CHOOSE AFFORDABLE & MONEY WISE

Have you ever actually calculated all of your incomes and your costs?
After putting numbers on paper, you will be able to compute your pluses and minuses.

See where are your biggest costs & how you can cut or replace them.

For example: if you are women – you can cut menstrual costs by getting a menstrual cup.

If you are man – you can cut drinking costs by lowering numbers of beers. (just kidding!)
Sorry, but currently I can’t think of any example related to man savings.
But I believe you get the point. 🙂

In the end, it’s all about saving money and spending it exclusively on stuff that will actually bring your money back.

Again, you don’t have to be rich – but smart!

I hope these advises will help you so you can cross at least one more country from your travel goals map this year.
