Everyday I’m Hustlin’: Saving Money For Travel

Coming from a family with an immigrant father and immigrant grandparents on my mother’s side, I grew up really knowing what it means to hustle. You’re constantly looking for new ways to make money, always plotting your next steps, always searching for that next side gig. It’s the “where there’s a will, there’s a way” mentality. You just have to make things happen… somehow.

Best Apps for CHEAP Flights

January 13, 2016 – Everyone is on the mission to find cheap flights,… I know I am. Over the past year, and after much searching, I have discovered several apps and websites that not only simplify the flight search experience but also get the prices I’m looking for. Here are some of my favs:

Kayak.com/explore – (FREE – iOS or Android) Everyone knows about Kayak but oddly enough when I ask friends if they’ve ever used the ‘Explore’ feature, I hear “no” over and over again. ‘Explore’ will display a map of the world with pin points throughout detailing flight prices and the dates of available. You can search by month or season and you can set a max for price and/or length of flight (time). If you have flexibility with your dates and are open to a variety of locations around the world, you will adore this feature! It is my absolute favorite app! I use it every time I search for flights. Additionally, the ‘Explore’ tool is available on the app or online. Kayak has additional features such as hotel and car rentals, reviews, a flight tracker and flight alerts in case you want to keep an eye out for price drops.
