This week we have part 2 of our Survival Thriftiness series. We start out this week with a few ways to save money while traveling.
Mike talks about folding bikes to get around. They pack up small and can get you around town. To save money on hotels I mention couch surfing. Many people are willing to let you crash on their couch. To me the least important part of traveling is where I sleep. To this I also will find rest stops near my destination and just sleep in my car.
Mike begins the discussion on paper over plastic. Why you can save tons of money by using cash over a debit or credit card. You can see the money going away and will hesitate spending it more than with cards.
To add to using cash I mention the envelope system. It is a way to save money while ensuring bills are paid. I heard about it from some tiny housers. I used it to help save for my tiny house and to pay off my debt. I found a link to explain it much better. I will be implementing it soon and will follow up.
