I love travelling with my family. My 6 year old daughter have visited at least 20 different countries to date. Always believe the best education for my kids is to travel and experience the beautiful world. We have at least 3 foreign holidays a year and three of those are always in a new city or country.
All this is only possible via saving up and cutting down daily unnecessary expenses and advance planning. We save hard so we can carefully spent on good luxuries, food and key essentials.
Honestly, we do not keep a strict budget or expenditure spreadsheet. We make is a discipline habit to always seek for deals, discounts and removing non-essential monthly expenses. Similar to the philosophy of; Diets never work for weight loss however a good healthy lifestyle with regular exercise is the long term simple solution.
