Budget ideas

630x355 (2)

My family has always stressed the importance of living on a budget, living within your means. If you want something you can’t afford, don’t go and borrow money save, save up for what you want. Working towards your goals makes reaching them that much sweeter.

And that may be especially true when it comes to travel. There are some awesome experiences out there just waiting tried. And with some of the more luxurious experiences, most of us are going to have to do some careful planning in order to enjoy a vacation like this. I am going to give you a few ideas of ways you might be able to save

  • First, you might want to open up a savings account that is specifically for your travel expenses. This is going to help you stick with the idea that this money is only for upcoming trips.
  • If you aren’t on a budget already, consider creating one. You are going to have certain payments that are going to stay the same each month, and certain things that are going to flocculate each month.. Do you eat out each day for lunch? How much do you spend on entertainment, on things like going to the movies, renting movies, going out to eat with friends? All these type of things are called discretionary spending, and only you will know what’s right for you and your family.

Can you think of other ways you might save money? Write and let me know.

  1. I really enjoyed reading your post… The design is beautiful! Staying on budget is hard but technology can help. Perhaps try out the Ibotta App- it helps me save money and earn Cash on purchases, plus you can get $10 for signing up using code: apbnfta

    • Thanks.. Using a travel agent can actually save you money as well. I’m always getting e-mails about travel deals.. I also have a lot of resources. Let me know if you are interested..
