I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m living on a pretty tight budget, but that doesn’t mean I should deprive myself of fun this summer, especially when that fun could include travel!
In case you haven’t noticed, I love to travel (both near and far), see places I’ve never seen, visit familiar people and scenes, and just be on the road (or in a plane). Sure, living out of a suitcase can get old but overall, I find travel exhilarating and don’t want to deprive myself of something that feeds my soul just because it’s not an easy fit into my budget so today, I want to share three ways you (and I) can save money on travel this summer.
1. Put Aside A Little Every Week
Whether this actually means every week or every paycheck you put aside $10 or $20 (or more if you can afford it), that money will add up quickly and by the time your trip comes around, you’ll have a good amount of extra cash to spend on sight seeing, souvenirs, or to put towards food, drinks, and other travel expenses.
2. Think Close
I have been known to have stay-cations from time to time and while this is always a great option, I also get the desire to get away from home for a few days. Think of places within a short drive that you’ve never been or haven’t seen for years. It’ll be close enough to keep expenses low (think no flights), but far enough that you’re required to get a hotel room for a night or two.
3. Groupon Coupons
Groupon Coupons allows you to shop for all those things you would otherwise shop for, but with a discount. Who doesn’t want that? I know, I do! Make this your one stop shop before booking your travel with Travelocity and before hitting up Target or Kohl’s for any of your vacation clothing or accessory needs! 😉
