Are you interested in wanting to travel more but also saving money along the way?
One of the most common excuses for not traveling is finances. But one woman just proved that finances are arbitrary for those who are able to seriously commit to goals.
Michelle McGagh recently wrote about her “buy nothing” year, during which she did not buy anything—except for basic necessities like her mortgage, utility bills, weekly groceries, insurance, cleaning products and charity donations.
After one year of cutting out unnecessary expenses, McGagh saved $27,680 (£22,439) and used that money to pay off her mortgage.
While what McGagh did was extreme, there are many places where most people could cut back. For those looking to save money for travel but are unsure where to start, take a tip from her “buy nothing” year and learn how to spend less.
