We all have places we would like to see and things that we would love to do in life. I’ve been quite lucky in my life and have visited a lot of the locations on my bucket list. People often ask me how I afford it. Am I simply rolling in money? Well, it’s more to do with how I’ve managed to use and save my money over the years and a few other little tricks I’m happy to share with you.

Treating Saving As A Bill
Basically, that means that a certain amount of money needs to come out of your bank account each month. This could be anything up to a quarter of your paycheck. If you can afford to save you should. Once you’ve done this, halve the amount you have saved. That’s what you can spend on fun trips and wanderlust. The rest is for the future, and that’s my first little trick.
Try Some Simple Investments
They really do work a treat. For instance, anyone can get into forex trading with a little time on their hand. Why not you? You can invest as little or as much as you like and it’s about knowing when exchange rates are going to rise and fall. You can make quite a lot of money doing this in your spare time.
Borrow Now, Play Now, Pay Later
Alternatively, you can think about borrowing the money for your travel plans. If you think that sounds dangerous, you’re not borrowing from the right place. There are lots of companies online that offer low levels of interest on loans that could get you half a world away from here. Check out this infographic on recognising a safe lender.
