Saving money is tricky.

There are people listening who want to know how to save more at home, spend less on the road, or save more on the road so they can perpetuate their travels.

So often, we ask travelers about travel saving strategies — and while I think the more well-traveled are particularly good at saving money on the road, saving money at home is equally – if not more important. And when I want to know more about money, then I want to spend time talking to the people who spend all of their time thinking about money, and not travel.

Today I get to sit down with two financially-minded gentlemen — Andrew Fiebert and Matt Giovanisci from the award winning, fun, at times hilarious blog and daily podcast, Listen Money Matters, to have a casual, upbeat conversation about money saving strategies.


What We Cover:

  • Craft beer, and products, as a great way to explore a particular location.
  • 3 tools to create automated systems to save money for (and on!) your travels.
  • A system for saving money if you don’t have steady income.
  • A simple way to break up your income: Andrew says your rent should never be more than 1/3 of your take home, and 1/3 of your money should be a saving. That leaves 1/3 for day to day expenses, and you can determine how much of that you want to save for your travels.
