As most of you know, we saved and planned for this trip for almost 5 years. It took a lot of discipline and dedication. We are often asked how we did it and would like to share our methods, madness and secrets.
- Worked extra jobs
- Think of savings as a monthly bill
- Cost saving measures
- Owned older cars
- Used credit cards
- Paid school tuition as we went
- Set goals and celebrate them
- Renting out our town home
Much more detail will follow soon on each of these savings tips. Just remember you have to start somewhere. Make a small, manageable goal to start and build from there.
