  1. Good luck! I understand how hard it can be to not spend spend spend. To keep yourself motivated, maybe you could start hanging pictures of Ireland around your place, have a countdown to Ireland app on your phone, or (I’ve seen others do this) put a post-in on your credit card that reads IRELAND!!! It may make you think twice about spending unnecessarily.

    1. Lol but it feels so much better knowing you’re broke from experiencing the world as opposed to just spending your money on stupid things! No regrets!

  2. I love how you make is so simple, but honestly if we did cut out the things we could live without just for a little while we would be able to save money! My problem with saving money is can’t keep a job and with my husband only working all of our money goes towards bills. I did things on the side to make money though. So not being able to save money is sort of my fault right now.

    1. It is so so hard to balance being an adult and saving money! Those rough patches can feel like an eternity. You’ll get there!! <3

    1. You’d think it would be so easy to stop but it’s really not! And I work in retail so it’s hard to not buy absolutely every cute shirt or jacket that comes through!

  3. Good luck on your saving mission – it’ll be worth it once you get there! I don’t have problems saving nowadays as I’m earning more now that I’m older ( plus I hardly ever spend money on anything except travel!) but when I was younger I’d clear out clothes, furniture and anything of value that I didn’t use anymore/wouldn’t be using for the foreseeable future and then sell it all at a yard sale. It not only helped me clear my wardrobes and home of clutter before I’d go (which was super liberating!) but I’d also make some good cash too!

  4. I love the honesty of your post and can DEFINITELY relate to it all! I had to cut back big time on shopping, and it was hard, but I knew that in the long run it would be worth it. I value travel now much more than material items, it just took me a long time to get the self-control needed to save some cash. Thanks for sharing!

  5. So smart to shift 45% directly into your travel savings account! This is such a great way to make sure you don’t touch it. Although your method is simple, the beauty is that it IS simple and everyone can adopt the same or something similar!

  6. This is exactly why i created my free travel budget calculator =) Good work kicking it into gear sometimes a big goal is what we need to motivate us into breaking bad habits. Hope you make it to Irland =)

  7. I’m hearing you! Saving is not my strong point. I’m more of a pay all the bills and anything else is fair game kinda girl (shoes and travel feature heavily lol). What an exciting move to Ireland!

  8. this is by far, a good article for women talking about money, it’s real! like, we got to see more what’s next after 5 months when you will be in Ireland, and how progressive is it of what you are doing now. it’s honestly exciting. or maybe because we are on the same path.hahaha.. i so love this! way to go.. Aja!

  9. Saving money is so hard. I don’t actually like to shop that much but still find it really difficult to save money because basic things just add up. I was able to save up a ton for my last trip due to working tons of extra shifts. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the savings gods too be good to you. Good luck! 🙂

  10. A really brilliant savings technique!! I love the honesty of your post. Best of luck in your savings, I think I”m going to try to attempt something similar…!
