I am planing on saving for 1 year before going on my travels..
My target to save – Between £7000 – £8000
Time – 1 year
How much a month to put away – between £400- £600
How long to I want to go travelling for? – 1 year (hopefully!)
Ways I am going to save –
Take pack lunches into work – Stop buying lunches from cafes/ restaurants and snacks which I do not need! Doing a big shop and making salads, sandwiches and wraps to take in.
Share lifts to work – Sharing lifts will help to save on petrol. I am only going to be filling my tank once a month which costs about £40.
Stop going in to clothes shops on my lunch break – On my lunch breaks or before work, after work, anytime I can, I love to go shopping for clothes, this has to stop in order to save!
Second hand – If I need a shopping fix, charity shops are the only place you will find me from now on.
Movie nights in – More Saturday nights watching movies on Netflix instead of going to the cinema.
Less Alcohol – I am currently doing dry January which I have noticed I have saved a lot! I’m not going to completely give up alcohol, I love a good glass of red wine, cold beer or a yummy cocktail! I am just going cut down, so more house party’s instead of expensive bars, and less alcohol at the pub.
Any other ways anyone could recommend would be good!
Lets see if I stick to these! I will keep you up to date with my saving ideas and plans.
