I lived paycheck to paycheck for the last 30 years. I am aware of my situation so I started an automatic deduction of $150 from my bi-weekly earnings. Now, even if I spent everything, I have somehow set something aside for travel.
I have decided to travel to a new destination at least once a year while I can. The whole process of preparing for travel keeps me in vacation mode. I am now actively researching and anticipating my next destination while the budget grows.
