I love traveling. Who doesn’t? What I don’t love as much, though, is how I usually go over the budget that I had initially set for myself. Apparently, this is a pretty common problem that most of my travel buddies share.
It’s easy to forget (or ignore) your budget when you’re out and about in a new city. Where can I buy this? Where else can I experience this?, you might think, before handing over your credit card. The full extent of how much you spent usually hits you when you’re back home.
Don’t let this happen to you again. It’s easy to get sidetracked when you’re on vacation, but a tool called TripSaver might just be the thing you need to budget better.
It’s essentially a travel expense tracker that features a neat and easy-to-use layout. I especially like the counter that shows just how far or how close you already are to spending your daily limit.
All you have to do is fire the app up and enter any expenses you incurred throughout the day. The app draws up attractive pie and bar graphs of your spending so you can gauge your spending quickly and easily.
The TripSaver app is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $1 gives you access to the app before its release (and at half of its $1.99 retail price). TripSaver has already surpassed its funding goal, so it should definitely be released.
