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.

So why not try these new habits?  There’s nothing to lose.
