Because our blog focuses on financial freedom through investing in real estate, we want to share some saving tips that we do when planning trips.
Every now and then, we need to escape the “hustle and bustle” of our everyday work lives, BUT we don’t want to spend a lot by doing so! If things are tight in your budget and you’d like to improvise to get some time away, you may appreciate our suggestions!
We decided on a 4 day trip to Tennessee (as we typically do!). We stayed busy by hiking at the nearby parks, having bonfires, soaking in the hot tub, watching movies, and stopping in at the local Winery.
When planning to travel on a tight budget consider these 5 things:
Planning a short trip like this allows you to decompress without breaking the bank. Our budget breakdown: Lodging stay less than $500. Shopping and attractions $35. Gas & Miscellaneous Items less than $200. In total, less than $800 was spent. Being frugal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice, it just means you have to improvise and maximize your experience! At a time where we are all constantly plugged in and always on the run, time away from all of that can really reset your buttons and prove to you that you can live without always being connected to your phone.
Although for us financial freedom will come through passive income and appreciation in properties, financial freedom also comes through being smart with your money and having it stretch as much as possible along the journey!
