Not along ago we described three ways we’re saving money to fund long-term travel and no doubt we’ll be posting more money-related material in the coming months with ways we’re cutting our expenses and generating extra cash to follow our travel dreams.
But if you’re one of those people who just can’t seem to save any money for traveling, here are two steps GUARANTEED to help kick-start those travel savings!
Spend less than you earn.
Save the difference in a travel fund.
It really is that simple! If you earn $500 a week, spend $400 or less and after a year you’ll have over five-thousand dollars towards your next adventure! The bigger the gap between your income and expenditure, the bigger your savings!
So what are you waiting for?!
If you want further info on the concept of spending less than you earn, I recommend checking out this excellent post from The Simple Dollar.
