Money saving tips that will help you go on a trip this summer

Let’s be completely honest for a second, for those who have traveled before, traveling is an amazing experience, and they would love to do it as much as they can. However, it is expensive and may not be affordable for everyone.

On the bright side, the tips we’re going to share with you in this article will help you overcome this challenge, but before that you’ll need to do some preparations. A friend of mine who works in the tree service industry travels off season to different parts of the world. He has the following to share. By the way here is a link to his home page www.aesthetictree.ca/coquitlam-tree.

  • Do your research

You need to know exactly how much money you need to save in order for you to go on that trip, so create a list of activities that you want to do, how much each one of them costs and how many days you need to check everything off your list. (This is important since accommodation might be a big part of the budget)

  • Commit

This is a long term goal, and for it to become a reality you need to know that it’s going to take time and effort. You’ll need to know where your money goes and make some sacrifices.

 

  • Learn how to cook

Eating out is expensive and may be the thing that’s holding you back from saving up for that trip. The cheaper and better alternative is learning how to cook. Not only is it a cool and ridiculously gratifying experience, it’s a way for you to know exactly what goes inside your body.

  • Reconsider your transportation

If your way of commuting is by using a car, then maybe you should reconsider this luxury and downgrade to public transportation if possible. Or you can do your body a huge favor and start walking or maybe ride a bike.

  • Quit smoking

If you’re an active smoker and have the dream of traveling, then you should definitely consider quitting smoking. You shouldn’t allow a negative habit like this one stop you from getting one of the most fulfilling experiences you can have as an individual.

We all know that it’s an extremely difficult habit to quit, so your 1st step should be to know how much do you spend on cigarettes and try to cut that number by around 30%, of course the more the better, but that depends on your willingness and commitment.

  • Cancel that gym membership that you don’t need

If you have a gym membership and you don’t go more than 3 times per week, then you should definitely cancel it. You can get in great shape by simply running, skipping rope and doing bodyweight exercises such as pushups, crunches and pull-ups

 

  • Sell some stuff.

If you have stuff that you’re not using and they’re just lying around collecting dust in your drawer at home, then you should definitely consider selling them. You can use platforms like eBay, Facebook marketplace and craigslist to list these items and make some easy cash that will go into your saving plan

 

  • On weekends go garage selling and flip stuff

This one means you might sacrifice binge watching your favorite Show on the weekend, but a great way to make money is to buy things and sell them at a higher price for profit.

You can find people selling stuff that they don’t need at a very low price at a garage sale, find items that look like they might be selling for a decent amount of money online, buy them, and then list them on a website like eBay. You can even take this a step further by finding people that want to get rid of stuff, so that you can get it from them for free and make even more profit.

 

  • Work online

A great way to make money online is freelancing. If you’re good at something or you if you have a certain skill that is in demand, then you should definitely consider this option. You can control how many hours you work, choose a job you like and make money from the comfort of your own home.

There are tons of platforms where you can work like upwork, freelancer, fiverr and much more.
