Many people have often mistaken us for being very well off financially to have traveled the way we have. Here are a few tips and strategies that you put into practice when planning for your travels.

1. Cut Your Expenses

The older I get, the more I don’t want to be a Scrooge MacDuck, but there are still things that I don’t care to spend my money on, like magazines and expensive sunglasses.

2. Increase Your Income

I’ve always worked multiple jobs, worked over time, taken on boarders, and now have my own business. There are always ways you can increase your income to get money you need. 

3. Save all the excess

Take all money you’ve saved from the expenses you don’t need PLUS all that extra you’ve collected from creative ways to earn more income and whack it into your savings account.

How Can I Create More Money in Order to Travel?

Start thinking about what skills you have and what extra jobs you can take on to earn and save more money for travel.

Boarders / Rent

Before we left for our five-year honeymoon, we had our own 4 bedroom two story house. Instead of just the two of us trying to fill in the space we invited two people to come join us.

Sell Unused Possessions

Ebay and Craigslist are ready to be your new best friend. Go through all your crap and sell what you don’t need or use.
