I have some big travel plans coming up later this year and hopefully next year. Saving enough money to achieve everything you want to do is always hard. In order to prepare for my trips away I have decided to keep a budget in order to track my spending and saving. I found a good free template “budget planner” here.
There are also many apps that will allow you to track your spending on the go.
Tracking your spending helps to make you aware of where you are actually spending your money. Hopefully this will allow you to identify areas you may be able to cut back and think more before you make a purchase.
When first starting my budget I did the think “OMG what have I gotten myself into” haha. There was quite a bit of money that I had forgotten I was paying for subscriptions and memberships. Some of these I was able to get rid of and save myself some money.
I am planning on visiting England and Scotland later this year so stay tuned as I will have plenty of adventure to share!
