“ Once I am independent, I am going to travel the world”

Then after getting a job,

“ Yes! My first Salary. Let me buy some stuff for my family, then I will start saving money in the next month.”

2nd month

“ Oh my God, after all the bills, I have some penny left. How am I going to save?”

3rd month

“ Oh I like that bag so much! Maybe I should postpone saving”

And the saga continues...

We all struggle in our life, frustrated of wanting a break from all the work. We ponder about it. But we never try to put effort in it. We just make excuses to ourselves while there are many who hit the road, roam around the world and upload it on social media.

Grabbing a coffee at our workplace, scrolling through our social media and getting jealous of those Instagram pictures of friends and travelers, is all we are left with.

Every start of the month we start with a planning. Failing in the mid way,  and no road ahead. Just like a diet plan.

So here I will try to put the light on facts that we do, and how to realize and stop it.

Expecting a good trip

Ways to save your Budget:-

  • Stop unnecessary subscription:

We pay bills for our tv or apps etc, which we don’t use regularly. Cut it off and use that money to your savings.

  • Sell you’re the items u don’t need:

Those ancient books since 300 years on the corner of your shelves, can be used by someone else. Share your knowledge and sell it on websites. Or your clothes.

  • Set milestones.

Don’t be a lazy panda and start setting small tasks regularly. Eating out is only going to make you round, not a zero! And it might make your savings Zero. So switch to home- made food and be healthy.
