Do you know how long habits take?
According to the University College London (UCL) on average it takes 66 days to change a habit.
But it all starts with the first step…
To break bad spending habits and start saving for your next vacation, here are four simple tricks:
1. Set up an automatic transfer to a savings account. An automatic transfer of just $85 per month will save over $1,000 annually for your next vacation.
2. Skip the small stuff like $5 coffees at Starbucks or $70 mani/pedis. Those small frivolous expenses add up fast and aren’t worth it. Besides, it’s easy to make your own coffee and paint your own nails.
3. Keep a change jar in your kitchen as a daily reminder to control your spending. Just before your trip, cash in the coins at a bank or coin machine.
4. Negotiate all the time. I used to be a professional buyer and everything is negotiable, from groceries to cars. Simply ask “Is this price negotiable?” and you’ll be shocked at the number of “yes” responses you get.
