Lately I have decided to try and pinch pennies wherever possible in an attempt to save up for all the trips I am taking this year. This penny pinching is mainly centered around spending money on liquor and beer when I go out. I’ve been making sure to get whatever is on special, drinking domestic taps, staying in for food, and more. The one downfall… shopping.
I keep trying to justify the purchases with saying such as “dual usage” and “how great would these jeans look on the streets of NYC?!” Alright, the last one is not all that viable, but the first one is… sort of.
Maybe the best thing to do is to tell myself that every purchase is something I could have bought on the trip. How do you guys save up for trips?
I think from now on I will stay away from malls and stick to the dollar beers.
Frugality, here I come!
