Sticking to your Budget whilst on Holiday

There are so many way to save money when it comes to holidays, so I have just included a few of the best ones. The most important one for me is to be realistic about your budget.

The 5* Instagram worthy holiday is always going to be appealing, but if it derails your financial goals, is it really worth it? It is also important to remember just because your friends are doing it, doesn’t mean you have to.

I know so many friends who are paying for their bad financial behavior in the 20s even a decade later.

The financial hangover from this spending lasts a lot longer than the high of the fun of living in the moment. It is important to have your holiday budget as realistic as possible.

Are you a chronic over spender? Often splurge on impulse buys? Can’t workout where all your money’s gone by the end of the month? Even if you start off the month with the best intentions, your colour coded 4 page budget isn’t much use unless you manage it well.

Sometimes people can feel restricted by the words BUDGET (like it takes the fun out of life) – but on the contrary having a budget can actually bring you financial freedom!
