The most difficult part about traveling is saving for your next trip/ weekend trip.
Majority of us ends up spending more than the expected amount and that leads to imbalance of what could have been done within that much amount only.
I also try these ways to save for weekend trips and it works really well for me.
5 Terrific Ways to Save for Your Weekend Trips
1. Go Homemade
Saving starts from home.
Most of the amount spent is on food and clothes. Then why, we are not willing to take the extra effort of making the homemade food and what else will happen if we had not bought a new cloth say for a month.
If you want to save for weekend trips there some sought of sacrifice requires from your side and that will be worth it.

Going homemade is the super effort and you will really feel better at the end of the day when you see that you had saved a lot.
These are some of the products you can make at home to save money.

Yes, this works. It’s more like a piggy bank kind a thing but you will be surprised with the results if you plan properly.
Every penny counts here, and will make everything under control.
Start collecting every penny you save while buying groceries, money saved from bus travel or other expenses. Make a separate cupboard for Travel, and start putting the money saved from other expenses there.
At the end of every week you will see a reasonable amount of money collected and that’s where the further planning begins.
