Welcome to Frugal February!

Welcome to Frugal February!

The day you’ve all been eagerly waiting for is finally here. February 1, 2011. Lauren Conrad’s 25th birthday! Oh wait a minute, you’re not here to celebrate LC’s birthday?!

In that case, welcome to Frugal February on Don’t Ever Look Back!

Over the next 4 weeks, we’ll be sharing a wealth of information with at least 5 totally awesome posts per week! Some of the topics we’ll be covering during Frugal February include:

  • Simple tactics to get your finances better organized and speed up the savings process.
  • Specific tips on how you can save money, both before you travel and on the road.
  • Weekly challenges with the aim to add at least 1 extra night to your travel itinerary!
  • Weekly collaborative posts where we will ask you, the readers, to provide your input and help out your fellow travelers.
  • Plus much, much more!

The objective of Frugal February is to give you at least one fresh piece of advice that helps you achieve your travel dreams faster. Most travelers we know are pretty good at budgeting and saving, but we’re pretty sure that there’s always room for improvement – we know that we could make plenty more sacrifices, hence the reason for this project!

To ensure we give you advice that has been tried and tested by travelers around the world, we’ve locked in 10 of our favorite travel bloggers to share their advice and secrets with you throughout the month! You know you don’t want to miss out on any of these posts – subscribe to Don’t Ever Look Back in your RSS reader or subscribe via email to get the posts directly in your inbox each day.

In tomorrow’s post we will discus setting travel and financial goals and how these will become the building blocks to your success.

    Aww man, I was really here for LC’s bday!

    hahahaha! No, but really I can’t wait for this. I just had to put a pretty big dent in my savings because my car got towed today while I was at the doctor :(. I’m welcoming any and all tips to help me save money!

    I’m a big fan of Frugal February. Went almost $100 over January’s budget, so I’ll need to really trim back in February to catch up. Good thing it’s a short month.
