how to increase your travel fund part 2

We’re continuing our conversation from last week’s episode where Emily and I discuss ways you can put more money into your travel fund!

This week, we’re touching on points number 5 and 6 – both of which are my favorites! Taking up a side hustle and learning to make more intentional purchases will easily make big changes to your money-saving efforts.

What You’ll Learn

  • Ideas for easy and profitable side hustles.
  • The difference between intentional and regrettable purchases.
  • How to discover your “latte factor”.
  • Three questions to ask yourself before making a purchase.
  • Psychological tips for not spending money on things you don’t need.

Written by Brooke

I run the show at Her Packing List and love packing ultralight. In fact, I once traveled for 3 entire weeks with just the contents of a well-packed 12L handbag. When I'm not obsessing over luggage weight, I'm planning adventures or just snuggling with my pet rabbit, Sherlock Bunz.
