Day 2930 – I’ve Always Wanted To Do That – or – Did You Save Your Money? – or – How To Save For A Road trip

One year ago today, I posted a blog titled – How To Go From “I’ve Always Wanted To Do That!” To “I Did That!”. I detailed a good budget for a road trip, very close to what Bret and I did and spent last summer. I also gave a challenge – save $40 a paycheck for 2 years. If you did that, you would have enough saved for a road trip very similar to the one we took. So, I have to ask you, did you save your $40 a check this past year? If you did, you’d have $1,040 saved for your trip. $40 might sound like a big number, but it’s really not, that’s $20 a week, $2.86 a day. What small purchases are you making each week that add up to this? If you said no to a coffee or a meal, you could take your trip.

I’ll check back with you about this next year, where I hope you’ve saved $1,040…..or $2,080. 🙂

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
