Everyone deserves to go on a trip.
Whether it’s a business trip or a leisure trip, you deserve to enjoy the scenic views you’ve only heard about from your relatives and your officemates. You deserve to enjoy the tranquil waters you’ve only seen in pictures from the internet. Most of all, you deserve to have fun after working so hard for months.
The only question is: “Have you already saved up for this kind of trip?”
No? No worries!
You can – and you will still be able to – save up for this kind of trip (a one month Europe trip, even) by:
Following The 10-20-70 Rule
Let’s face it.
No matter how much you want to do something or how long you have been doing something, you will never achieve your goals without a foolproof strategy. That’s why, it’s recommended – most especially for beginners, as well as for those who are looking to only save until a certain period of time – to follow the 10-20-70 rule. This rule involves setting aside 10% for tithes, 20% for savings, and 70% for expenses. This doesn’t just allow you to efficiently sort out your priorities in life, but also efficiently sort out your feelings when it comes to saving and budgeting.
Cutting Down On Expenses
It takes a whole lot of discipline to do this. But if you really want to go somewhere awesome for your next vacation leave, you have to do this – without any doubts, without any questions, without any compromises. This is for you to really focus on your goal and to really act on your goal, as well as to more appreciate what’s there in front of you. Cut down your expenses by switching off unused appliances, reducing the usage of electronics, reusing bath water for other purposes, and the list goes on and on.
