Imagine you’re sitting on a beautiful tropical beach right now, cold drink in your hand.

Now, what’s stopping you from making that dream become a reality?

Saving for your next trip can be tough, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. You want to hit the beach and get away from the office or the stress of daily life, but finding the cash to make it happen feels like a losing battle.

Financial experts offer lots of tips online, but who has time to try them all out? Luckily for you, the research has been done, and here are five money-saving hacks so simple you’ll wonder why you weren’t doing them already.

You’ll be walking along the beach in no time with these...

Skip the Morning Coffee

It’s hard to give up that morning caffeine rush, and one coffee doesn’t feel like much of an investment.

But have you ever actually added up how much those coffees cost you in a week?

Square Up’s 2018 coffee report found that the average price of a latte in Queensland was $4.39. It doesn’t sound like much, but for daily drinkers, it ends up to $30.73 a week.

That’s over a thousand dollars a year!

Skip one coffee a day - no need to even make you give up your afternoon espresso - for just five weeks, and you’ve already covered a weekend getaway accommodation for you and your partner.

This actually comes with a health benefit too, with the health experts at Get A Healthy Life explaining “caffeine can have positive health effects, but too much becomes a problem. From anxiety to insomnia and digestive issues, too much coffee can impact your health in a major way. By cutting back you won’t just save money, but reduce your risk of nasty side effects too.”

Suddenly that latte is losing its appeal!

Set Up Automatic Savings Transfers

Moving around money and setting up accounts seems scary, but this tip will have the dollars piling up in no time.

According to the financial experts at Metro Bookkeeping consolidating your accounts can help you save, noting “studies have shown that having all your money in one savings account can help save you 10% more. Quite simply, it's easier to track your spending and identify where money is being wasted when it all comes from one place.”

Transferring regular payments to your savings account is the simplest way to make sure you get the holiday you need.

You might not be able to send in hundreds of dollars a month, but we’d be willing to bet you can afford $3.50 per day. Yep, you heard us, just three dollars and fifty cents.

That’s less than that latte you’re giving up.

It doesn’t sound like much, but at the end of the month you’ll have just over $100.

That’s more than enough to make that getaway a long weekend holiday.

Host A Pot-Luck

Going out with friends is one of the hardest things to give up when you’re trying to save your money.

It’s hard to keep up your motivation to penny pinch when your friend’s Instagrams are blowing up with pictures of their night out. The solution? Host a potluck dinner.

For those not in the know, a pot luck dinner involves each guest bringing one dish to share. Basically, it’s a dinner party banquet, without all the usual costs of hosting.

Stuck for recipe ideas? According to development experts at Mindset Mastery cooking your own meals won’t just save you money but help your mind too, noting “cooking your own meals isn’t just about saving for a trip. It’s also a proven stress reliever and confidence booster, so you’ll not only look great when you get away but feel great too!”

So skip the night on the town, and have a fabulous risotto and wine dinner instead.

Sounds good, right?

It can seem intimidating to start saving money. But with a little patience, and a few of our tips, it won’t be long until you’re packing your bags for that well-deserved getaway.

So start making small changes today to enjoy a major holiday experience tomorrow!
