How to Save Money on Airfares Using A VPN

TRAVELLING WITHOUT THE HIGH COSTS MEANS A BIT MORE WORK SOURCING DEALS BUT WORTH THE EFFORT.   We often do a lot of traveling, whether it is for business ventures or vacations. In fact, we’re heading to the UK next month for the first time since I moved to Canada 10 years ago. Travelling to Europe isn’t as cheap as it was when I lived there. I was able to score some great deals and travelled to many countries for cheap and vacationed like a king on a budget. In today’s technologically advanced world, we can hardly spend time away from our digital gadgets. We need to check our Facebook accounts, watch the trending videos and keep our friends updated about our whereabouts — even when we are traveling. But in doing so, we often risk our online security. Especially when we use the public or semi-public Wi-Fi at the airports, train stations, cafes, and hotels.

How I budgeted my travel expenses for work and play

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE EMBRACE LIFE   Two words that comes to mind when I think back on the summer that has just passed is adventure and travel expenses. Not everyone has to worry about travel expenses when travelling for work but if you are on a budget this is critical to staying on top of your finances. Today I’m going to share with you my experiences from this past summer travelling for work and play with my family plus what lessons I’ve learned along the way.   Budgeting On The Road   Getting on and off 11 different airplanes in less than 2 months and several multiple hour road trips from one province to another certainly made for an adventure this past summer. When I was asked by my company to travel to various locations in Canada I was really excited, who wouldn’t be when offered the opportunity to travel when almost all travel expenses were covered? Though my company paid for all my flights, hotels and all but one of my rental cars upfront, I found that travelling for work wasn’t as easy as it sounded. If you are ever given the opportunity to travel through your employer […]

Cheap Summer Family Outings-Not Everything Has To Cost Lots Of $$ Money

By: Canadian Budget Binder Have you ever noticed once the winter sets in most people are comfy sitting inside with the family watching movies around the fire,eating popcorn or playing games. Well that gets old, although it’s a fairly cheap night in with the gang. Then suddenly our lawns turn from white to blah and from gremlins to warriors we battle our way to sun, sand,music,parties and the smell of barbeques! (beer in hand I might add) Yes, it’s that time of year in Canada where we start to hear the lawn mowers running,the birds chirping and your neighbours spring cleaning their homes. Then we have the  kids who are anticipating or better yet counting down the last days before summer vacation. We’ve hung up our snow gear to dust off the next seasons attire because it’s time to get out and get moving again. When we think of fun for the family we automatically think money don’t we. Yes money can get you top-notch entertainment but not everything that is fun and educational costs money . Keep in mind not everyone has money to save for family getaways or short jaunts around the city. It also doesn’t make sense […]
