8 weeks to save 1000 € and go on vacation
My method is divided into 2 steps:
2. Reduce expenses
Save ? Reduce your expenses? I know … these aren’t really the 2 most motivating things in life.
But trust me, this method is the least painful way to help you save money before you travel.
2 small steps and you’re done. You can save up to € 1,000 more in your bank account … in just 8 weeks !
And € 1,000 … it’s already a nice little budget to organize a great vacation, don’t you think?
1st step: save
There is no secret … To have a good trip, you have to put some money aside! Here are my 2 tips for successfully saving money:
– Open a dedicated bank account : Opening a new bank account for your vacation budget is the easiest and most efficient way to save money. Why ? Because it avoids using these savings for your daily expenses. Moreover, if you have a bank card for this account, hide it at home until you go on vacation!
– Set a precise and quantified goal: by setting yourself a precise and quantified goal, like here 1000 €, you have a much better chance of succeeding in putting this sum of money aside and reaching this goal. Any financial pros will tell you: those who set specific savings goals save hundreds of dollars more than those who don’t set goals.
2nd step: reduce your expenses
Another effective way to save money for a trip is to cut spending and use that money for your vacation budget. Here are the 2 expenses I cut back when I want to save money fast:
– Meals at restaurants and home deliveries : eating at a restaurant or having it delivered is much more expensive than eating at home. Do the math: just by removing a single restaurant outing of € 50 per week, you are already saving € 400 in just 2 months. Crazy, isn’t it?
– Coffees at Starbucks and others: cream coffees, cappucinos, mochas… that we are used to having before and after work are expenses that quickly add up! The proof is that you can save up to 80 € in 8 weeks by making your own coffee at home instead of going to Starbucks or another such café.
And there you have it, you now know my technique to quickly save 1000 € and go on vacation this summer 🙂
Easy, convenient and efficient, isn’t it?
And believe my experience, in just 8 weeks of savings and a few reductions in your spending …
… you too will have € 1,000 of travel budget in your bank account, before you even know it!
