Travel and Auto expenses

Wayne Dyer quote


If you make travel a top priority in your life, and it’s something you absolutely desire, you’ll find a way to cut back on unnecessary spending and channel all your finances and energy into the travel direction.

We totally get how difficult it is to save money and pay down debt, especially if you have children and are living paycheck-to-paycheck, or you have student loans. We’ve suffered through losing our home and massive credit card debt.

But we eventually rewrote the story.

My sacrifice has been materialistic possession for the exchange of something that never fades, or breaks, or becomes outdated and contributes to my personal growth.

Get clear on what it is you want from life.

If you find you have a wardrobe full of clothes never worn, or a garage full of unused toys then you are not clear on what you want from life or your purpose.

Take an honest look at your spending habits.

Go over your last 3 months of bank statements and you should see patterns. You’ll probably be surprised at the number of things you are subscribed to and how many ways you waste money.

1. Reduce your bills

Make a list of all your bills. How can you reduce them?

A few tips:

  • Reduce your power, water, and gas bills.
  • Put your appliances on standby mode or unplug all unused devices.
  • Set your thermostat to a comfortable temperature.
