Don’t Let Them Take A Pennie Mo’
I fund all my travels by myself. What I don’t have, I make up in brains. Below is a list of resources that help me save money andd keep me going. Check it!
Books That Inspire Me
This book is what started it all. I refer to it all the time.
4. Joseph Kauffman
I am kind of a spiritual junkie. If you are interested in learning how to not let your emotions (such as fear) control you so much, I highly recommend all of Kauffman’s books. They’re easy to read and they’ll make you think for days.
Art is a war. If you struggle with any type of resistance, read it.
My 5 Travel Must Haves
For an entire summer, I walked around like a turtle in Southeast Asia. I love this backpack because it comes in different sizes and volumes. More power to shorties!
2. Packing Cubes
Stop rummaging for underwears and socks like an idiot. Use these to divide your clothes in your luggage and thank yourself.
Yes, I’m one of those environmental-friendly bag ladies. But seriously, this bag saved me so many times. Last minute souvenirs, laundry bag, paper bags ripping in the rain…. nothing worse than that… nothing.
5. Klean Kanteen
Are you still buying bottled water at airports? You know they’re not actually from Fiji or whatever magical spring they claim, right? Buy a water bottle and put more cha-ching in your pocket and less plastic in the ocean. Win, win.
Smart Travel Moves
I don’t know who this man is but he writes the most COMPREHENSIVE train/bus/boat travel guides in the entire world. Bravo, bravo, Mr. Seat61!
Travel insurance that covers injuries, theft, flight changes, and more. Worth it if you’re traveling for an extended period of time.
Hostelbooker and Hostel World
There are TONS of hostel websites and I encourage you to do your research but these two are my favorite because they allow you to cancel 24-48 hours in advance. Expert tip: book through the actual hostel and save even more money!
I don’t know your financial situation so use your judgment before opening any new CCs! Here are some of my favorites for traveling:
Bank of American Travel Rewards – earn $200 towards traveling after $1000 purchase (03/18)
Chase Sapphire – earn up to 50,000 travel points after spending $4,000 (03/18)
Charles Schwab Debit– reimburses ATM fees (03/18)
Do you have any awesome resources to share with me? I would love to know (really!)
