With summer break just a couple months away, it’s time to start thinking about where and how you want to spend your summer. Whether you’re traveling with a family, your kids, as a couple, or a solo traveler, all of the destinations below will work for you.
All of the cities and countries are budget-friendly, filled with adventures and excursions, perfect for relaxation and filled with culture and history.

Buy your flights at least 2 months in advance or use Hopper to save the most amount of money. Traveling also tends to be cheaper when you visit in August (or winter months altogether) rather than May-July.

There are several different strategies that can be used when trying to save up for a large purchase. Below are tips that can stem off onto other large purchases, and items that the majority of will buy a few times in our lives.
When you buy a car, you should think about the type of car you want to purchase. Do you want a car that is all about practicality, or do you prefer something more luxurious? After you’ve decided that, you should think about maintenance costs and how much you’ll be paying for the car besides the actual car payment. A luxury car is going to have much higher insurance than a car that is bought for practicality.
After you’ve decided that, you need to think about how you’ll pay for the day. Figure out how long the monthly payments will be and how long it’ll take.
Now that we’ve gotten the important stuff taken care of, we now need to figure out how we’re going to save for the car. Here are 7 tips to get you saving big money, which equals bigger down payment and less interest.
An article came out a while back that lets you calculate how much you’ve made your entire life.

It’s never too late to start saving money. It’s better to start now than to never have started at all.
I’ve shared a ton of money-saving tips on FITnancials, but this time I wanted to think outside the box and share tips that aren’t so obvious. Some of these things might gross people out or might be too difficult for you to do, and I understand that!
The whole point of saving money is trying your best and cutting purchases when you can. Think about how good it’ll feel when you can put a huge chunk of money toward your credit card or into your emergency fund.
Below are 9 tips to get you saving more money each month. Enjoy!
You may feel as if it were just the holiday season, and you might still have all of your winter clothing out, but March is here, which means spring is soon approaching. As per usual, stores are already ahead of the game and are pushing out products for the next season, which means last season’s products are going on sale.
March is filled with tons of savings ranging from travel-related expenses all the way to electronics.
Before I buy anything, especially big ticket items, I make sure to check when is the best month to buy the product.
I’m not trying to persuade any of you to buy these items, but if you’ve been needing one of the items I listed, March will be a great month to get a good quality item for a great price.
Most of the items pushed around the holiday season will be going into a huge discount mode.
If you are thinking of buying any of the below items, I’d wait until mid-March to do your shopping. If you have any other savings tips that I didn’t mention in the post, please leave a comment. I love how active the comments section has been lately!
