5 Tips to Save Up for Your Dream Spa
Have you been dreaming about owning your very own spa, but don’t have the finances to afford it? No problem, most people don’t have piles of money just sitting around. However, with a little planning you can save up your money to reach the ultimate goal of >owning your own spa. Here are some tips to help you stay motivated to save money for your new spa.
1. Fridge Image
We often lose sight of our long term goals after a few weeks because we let our mind wander onto other things. That dream you had will lose value over time because you’ve accepted that it is never going to happen simply because it hasn’t happened YET.
One way that you can keep your goal in sight—quite literally—is to place an image of the spa you want on your fridge. Every time you go to get something to eat, you will be reminded of your goal, and it will keep you motivated to save.
2. Set a Date
The best way to make your dream feel like it will actually come true is to set a goal date. Make estimations as to how long you believe it will take to save up enough money for your spa. The next step is figuring out how you’re going to save money, and the best way to do that is by eliminating expenses.
3. What Can You Cut?
In order to save money, you may need to make some sacrifices. This can be very hard, but when you think about how much you’re going to enjoy your new spa, you’ll find that it is worth it. Make a list of of a couple of things that you think you can go without up until your estimated spa purchase date. Write down how much you’ll save each month without these items to make your goal realistic.
4. Get Your Family Involved
If your family is also interested in a new spa, get them in on your goal as well. You can convince your spouse to help save money, and talk to your kids about some minor cuts that they will have to take in exchange for the spa.
5. Work More Hours
Pick up a few extra shifts if you can. Not only will this earn you more money, but it will keep you busy and make the days fly by until you can by your spa. You might even be able to pick a new date that is even closer if you make enough extra cash.
