Do you love to travel? Have you always wanted to see the world?
Well, that’s not likely to happen any time soon on a public interest budget. Even having a long-distance relationship can place a burden on your finances that will test the limits of your love. As everyone knows, travel is expensive, but that doesn’t mean that you are limited to whatever distance your legs can take you (since, as a nonprofit/government lawyer, you probably don’t have a car).
World travel is great, and if that’s the thing you want to spend your money on, there are plenty of travel hacking sites that can offer much MUCH more information about how to maximize your travel on little to no money.
This post is not for those people. This post is for the people who want to see their out-of-state family from time to time and actually go somewhere when they’re on vacation. As with most things when you make little to no money, planning and prioritizing are a necessity. You can score deals on last minute trips and hotel stays through discount sites and you can make it your business to become a pro at stalking the sites for the best prices, but you still need to have an upper limit set so that you don’t accidentally spend all of your grocery money, too.
