This is the last installment of this three-part article series, and I'll talk about two essential elements that comprise part of the routine of a freelancing professional.
Here's how to save up on --
Transportation and Meals
There are times when you have to go out and do research in a public library, or venues that allow access for research. You would need to plan your course of action carefully in order to maximize your days out.
Setting a budget for transportation fares and meals is very important, especially if it will take more than a few days for you to find all the resources you need in libraries and other venues.
A budget will prevent you from spending unnecessarily, causing you to deduct very little amounts from your cash flow. Consider the following in order to cut costs:
- Pack a water bottle in your bag.
- Bring a couple of sandwiches so as not to be tempted to turn to vending machines for soda and salty chips. Whole-wheat bread is best because it's extra filling.
- Take the jeepney, bus, or train whenever possible. Riding taxi cabs can rack up horrendous amounts of cash.
I have talked about this in greater detail in a previous post (click here to read).
