Save Money For Your Honeymoon
Cut The Coffee
First, a little money goes a long way. Do you and your spouse enjoy a delicious cup of Starbucks coffee every morning on your way to the office? It may seem like an insignificant amount of money by being $5-7 dollars a day. However, multiply that by 30 days and you’ve got $210 dollars, and then multiply that by 12 months and you’ve got $2,520! Not to mention if you’re both buying coffee, multiply $2,520 by 2! That leaves you with $5,040 you could put towards a honeymoon! Your honeymoon will only be as special as you make it, so sacrificing small things for a while can make a big trip that much better! Plus, while you’re out don’t forget to indulge in the delicious coffees around the globe as you travel. After all, you’ve worked hard for this!
Let’s face it. We all love eating out. The pleasure of delicious food and no cleaning up after?? Yes please! However, those tabs can really add up by the end of the month. In fact, most couples spend at least $2,500 a month on posts mates, or going out to eat. If you really want your dream honeymoon to become reality, go grocery shopping and enjoy a few months of cooking together. This way you can get creative, try new things, and have quality time. After all, you’ll be cooking more after you say I do!
Ladies, this one will be the hardest. After all, it feels so good to get a new dress or pair of heels. However, a few things here and there each month really do add up. I myself, spend around $500-$1000 a month on simple things such as clothes, jewelry, makeup, hair care, etc. So, you might have to rough it for a while until you get that honeymoon fund filled up. But listen, I’m not saying don’t get your brows and nails done! NO NO NO, we need that. I am saying, do you NEED that new blouse this month or can you put a few hundred away towards your dream honeymoon?
Fellas, as a man we know it’s hard to say no to your girl. Trust me! However, you want this honeymoon to be romantic, luxurious, and everything you both have ever dreamed of. So, you’re going to have to be a little stern for a few months until your honeymoon fund is set. This will allow you to travel with less stress. Less stress about a budget, less stress about going back to work, and less looking at the price tag. Does’t it feel good when you know you got it and you don’t have to worry about anything? That’s the goal.
