Day 2176 – How I Saved About $70 On Extra Expenses For Our Trip To California

You may have read my tips on how we flew to California for almost free. Today I wanted to share another tip!

If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know that we love to save money in any way that we can….really, so that we can splurge later on things like trips to California or gaming systems. I’ve talked a lot about the library. It’s a fantastic way to get a lot of reading material without spending the money. It’s one of those things that I’m like, how is this even possible???

I recently discovered that you can borrow magazines both physically and via a mobile app. Yesterday, I found about six physical magazines and am currently downloading 7 more. An average magazine runs about $4, so there’s 44 bucks. I also checked out two books, which run between $10-15 each.

One of my “treats” when I fly is buying a magazine or two, so this is a HUGE savings for us! And it means I can have more reading materials too!

Do you have any money saving travel tips?
