As travelers, we are constantly daydreaming about our next destination. However, sometimes it seems like those dreams will never become a reality. Sadly, even if you are budget traveler, traveling does take some money. So, how do you save up for the big trip? Great question - it is definitely something easier said than done. Here are our top tips for saving money for your next adventure:
Limit how much you drink. Alcohol is expensive. I know, you might not want to hear it, but even just limiting yourself to drinking one day a week can save you bundles of money! Similarly, if you have a coffee habit, brew at home instead of going to cafes. And if you buy bottled water, drink from the tap (or buy a water filter). If you spend $5 a day on either alcohol, coffee or water, that's $150 a month, or $1800 a year. That’s a flight, a couple months in southeast Asia, or a lot of really, really nice dinners in Europe.
Learn to cook. We all love to go out to restaurants, but they seriously drain your wallet. Learn to cook (which can be fun!!) and save your money for your travels. Restaurant food at your destination will taste that much better if you’ve been saving for it all along.
Buy second hand. Need new clothes? Or did your toaster break? Before you run to the store and buy brand new, check out resale shops, online websites that sell second hand goods, Chances you are going to be able to find whatever you need for the fraction of the price!
Sell your stuff. This is especially a good tip if you are going on a long-term travel because you aren’t going to need your couch while you are eating arepas in Colombia! However, selling your stuff that you no longer use is a great way to make extra cash for any trip. Use websites like Craigslist to sell furniture, electronics, clothes and kitchenware that you no long need.
Keep your eye on the prize. Saving money is hard, especially when we live in the world of instant gratification. But, keeping your goal in mind can definitely help keep you motivated! If it helps, print out pictures of your destination or change your phone background to one of those pictures so you are constantly reminded of how it will be totally worth it!
Check your progress. Not only will checking your progress keep you motivated, but it will also give you realistic expectations about your next adventure!
