Since our last post, that being our 12 month budget update – we have had a lot of people message and ask about how we keep track and what Apps we use so we have compiled our top 5.
👮 Fuel Map Australia
➖ Particularly since leaving the East Coast, this has been awesome! We can plan ahead. Diesel can be up to 40c cheaper just 20km’s down the road. The savings are better in our pocket! 👮
👮 Google Maps
➖ A fair few people asked who we made the map through.
👮 Gas Finder
➖ Because why pay more then you have to? Generally we just use the Swap N Go at Bunnings for $19.95. But if that’s not available…. this app comes in handy. We were once stung $60 for a bottle…. ummmm…. never again!
➖ The best $8.99 we’ve spent for the trip and lots of people will already know about it…. but if you don’t, go buy it! It shows free camps, low paid camps, caravan parks, dump points, drinking water taps, points of interest etc within the area. Choose a filter and you get the whole rundown with prices, reviews and recent photos – not just the ‘professional’ ones that parks get done up. Nothing worse then turning up and it looks nothing like their website!! 🗻
👮 Pocket Expense
➖ This is what we use to keep track of our money. You can make your own categories so…. ‘Groceries’, ‘Diesel’, ‘Accommodation’ etc. and then we just log it in as we buy things. So no, I don’t spend hours going through our bank statements to work out how much we’ve spent! ☺️
