Saving for a trip?

I had an incredible weekend.. But I’ve got to try to get some things done.

I am going to do something a little different today. Today we are going to talk about money, more specifically we are going to talk about ways you can save if you are interested in taking a trip and don’t have a money now… I am from a family of eight, and my parents raised us all not to live in credit card debt. We grew up hearing my Italian great grandmother’s saying, “you no have the money, you no buy,”. So I think I’m prejudiced, but I don’t think people should put trips or other things on their credit card and not have a plan to pay for it.

The first thing you should do is make a plan of how you are going to save. It will help if as soon as you are paid to set aside some money for your trip. And a big help on that would be to put yourself on a budget. How do you do that? This is a very simple explanation, but take all the expenses you have, divide it into months, and pay everything as soon as you can.

Another thing you can do is to give up a luxury you allow yourself, maybe it’s coffee, or eating out, and then put that money aside for your travels… Another thing you can do is to book trips through me in advance and pay off the trip a little at a time.
