Hello, friends of Jen! I’m Dus and I blog over at Cuddly Cacti and with the swap group Flock Together. I’m a born and bred Southwestern, and I have a love of travel, green living, social entrepreneurship, and personal style, all of which I mention on my blog.
1) Do that whole pseudo “Travel Hacker” thing (which we occasionally do) and open up cards with huge flyer mile or cash back bonuses for “travel cash.”
Or 2) Put a few dollars away each day that you’d have spent on a coffee/lunch out, etc. and let it add up. That one will add up slower, but you can save it even for a day trip to explore a beautiful site in your state you’ve always wanted to see.
And then of course you can check hostel.com (I recommend looking for private rooms in hostels if you’re a light sleeper like me), or priceline.com for cheap stays, you’d be surprised the great deals you can find online.
What are some of your favorite budget travel tips? I’d love to hear! Thanks for having me today Jen; I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season!
