Default what y'all doing to save up for next tripp

LOl after realizing, we didn't feel like getting a job. me n my btraveling partner started a waffle business, and before school starts everymorning, we make two waffffles n we put strawberrry jammm all over it, n put it together like a sandwich n powderrr sugar them. LOl, cause my house is right next to school, ppl either stop by in the morning, or we bring it to em before first period.

That's actually a really cute idea.. :3

Anyway, I'm selling off my worldly possessions on craigslist, selling textbooks on Amazon.com, and I made a deal with my parents (since they still provide me with food and shelter... ) that if we avoided going out to eat, going shopping, going to movies and other such things that we normally do on occasion, that they would give me the money that they saved from not doing those things.

I also had a yard sale back in August, which got like $600, and my various family members sent me about $300 in holiday money. So I've managed to make about $2000 doing all of those things so far, but it looks like I might need to get a little job soon to make up the difference.

i just worked in a pub for 1.5 years and i don't have to pay rent, so that really helped. and if i didn't drink i could have saved up even more!
i've been on the road for 3 months so far and i'm just going to travel until my money runs out. i'm hoping it will last for 1.5 years.
