Have you not seen the world yet? What's your excuse this summer? If it's that you can't get the time off work or you weigh half a ton and you can't fit into an airline seat, then I can't help you. However, if your excuse is, "traveling is too expensive", then I have some ideas.1) Getting rid of your cell phone will save you about $1,000 over the next 2 years. Are you really so important that you need one? (If you're an emergency surgeon, skip to #2).
2) Getting rid of that gym membership you never use will save you at least $500 over the next 2 years. (See: Jog in your neighborhood, invest in some home exercise equipment and/or walk places for a change!) If you take full advantage of your gym membership, skip to #3.3) Getting rid of your digital television subscription (i.e. DIRECTV) will save you about $1,000 over the next 2 years. Just because you've seen an exotic destination on Survivor, doesn't mean you've been there.
C'mon now TV Traveler!.That's $2,500 that you can use to take an amazing trip every other year. To stretch this amount farther you can travel during non-peak times of year and/or fly during the middle of the week.Say goodbye to meaninglessly yakking on your cell phone about the last Desperate Housewives episode while you're waiting in line for the stair-stepper .
