I’ve been thinking recently of what I want to achieve with my blog and what I want to write more about and that’s travelling. Travelling is one of my favourite things to do and one of my favourite blog posts to read so I’ve decided to incorporate travel into my blog more and I really hope you enjoy them. I really hope you enjoy this blog post, if you do, make sure to give it a like and a comment because I love hearing feedback and communicating with you, also if you’d like to read more from me, make sure to give my blog a follow.
So saving money, it’s such a tricky thing especially when your saving up for something you need a lot of money for, travelling can be quite expensive so finding the money to go can be quite difficult but if you save, that can make it so much easier. I’ve been saving up in multiple ways over the past year to save up for going somewhere and fortunately, I’ve been able to afford to go to Rome for a couple of days which I’m looking forward too. In today’s post, I am going to be telling you some ways you can save money for travelling no matter how old you are.
Get a part time job
The most simplest way to go about saving money is having a job because having an income can be important and if you keep a bit aside each month, the amount will soon build up and you will have enough money to go travelling in a couple of months. If your a teenager and you go to school, I would recommend getting a weekend job because a few hours a week can really add up. If your a bit older and have money responsibilities, I would recommend also keeping a bit of money aside each month because it will soon add up, maybe save spending more money on shopping etc.
Sell some unwanted things
If you have any unwanted clothes or items you could try selling them on Depop or eBay which are really good selling platforms. I’ve saved up quite a bit of money over the past couple months just from selling a couple clothes and things I don’t need so I would really recommend this. You can also take your unwanted clothes and convert them into cash which is a really good idea.
Save up a money jar
Each week at university I would have a jar that I would use to put any left over change that I had. I would also have a budget on my weekly shopping of £20 and any of that I didn’t spend I will put that into the jar as well. When it is full, I will then go and convert it into notes or put it into my bank and that’s something a little extra to the travel fund. Another idea is to have a pot that you put £1 in each day and the jar should be one that you can’t get into and you will save up money faster than you think because that’s £365 a year.
Create a saving’s plan with your bank
Having a savings account with your bank can be really ideal with saving up for anything. I have set up a section with my bank where I can put money into a plan purely for travelling and this adds a little extra to my travel fund. Next year I’m planning on going backpacking around Europe and having a savings plan can really help to save more money without having the temptation to spend it.
Have a spending plan and become financially responsible
Becoming responsible with money can be really hard but when you do, its the best thing you can ever do. The thing I use to become financially responsible is to have a spending journal, this has really helped to keep track of my spending and what exactly I’m spending money on. Also, at university, I have put together a spending plan and designated money to different things for example I’ve put aside £20 a week for food and £50 a month for different things. These are all my saving tips, I really hope this helps and I hope you enjoy the start of my travel posts.
