My BEST savings tip

Happy Easter everybody! I hope you have had a pleasant Easter, and I want to share my BEST tip for saving your hard earned cash! The best, top shelf, number one tip I have is so simple, you can save so much money by using it. You ready?

The advice I want to share is this: If you feel a need or a want for something, write it down, along with one reason to why you want and/or need it, then put away the notebook or piece of paper, and wait two weeks. Then go back and take a look at what you wrote down, see if you still feel that want or need. Most of the time, you won’t. Also note that you managed two weeks without that thing, can you manage two more?

The idea is that if you have security on two pillars, you can have a higher lever of risk in one pillar.

Summer 2015: Two months work in Oslo

Me and my girlfriend decided to go on a small adventure this summer. So we thought going to Norway and work for the summer would be a nice change of environment. So we began by booking the flight, then found an apartment to  rent. 2 days before takeoff my girlfriend gets booked for an interview. It was the same day we landed, and she got the job straight away. The first thing that happens for me when we land, is that my cell happens to get some wi-fi and I get booked for an interview for the same workplace!
