Just thought i’d give an update on the savings front and I’m nearly at the 1k mark. It’s going a bit slow at the mo and didn’t realise how difficult saving was going to be. All i do know is that I’m going to have to start and save a little harder and get better at saying no to ‘everything’ that people ask me to do or go. I need to get out of the habit of splashing the cash and get saving it, even if it does mean that my social life has to slow down or I will never get to America at this rate. But on the positive side 1k is better than nothing have just bought The Virgin Travellers Guide so think i will bury my head in that for money making tips!
