How this Mobile App Can Help in Making Your Dream Trip a Reality

It is the last day of February! How is your money challenge going? This year, I have decided to reverse my calendar and start from the highest weekly savings down to the lowest. It is hard, to be honest, but I am getting by. Always think about delayed gratification, right?

I hope you are not lagging behind your calendars, especially if you are saving for your future travel plans and investments. But even if you have not started saving yet, I have good news for you.

Rainier Dalumpines, an Assistant IT Manager of a Pharmaceutical Company, created a mobile application called I WILL SAVE to help you keep track of your savings for literally everything. Just like most of us, the graduate from the Technological University of the Philippines- Manila was inspired by the money challenges going around the internet for many years now. But since the calendars usually follow certain increments, the overall total by the end of the year may not exactly fit our needs.

 
You simply need to set your Saving Plan, Your Amount Goal, Monthly Budget and Timeframe

I WILL SAVE is not a mere 52- Week Calendar because it essentially allows you to create “PLANS.” Do you want to buy that drone so you can shoot amazing videos on your future adventures? How about that durable backpack you have been eyeing on the store for months already? The app permits you to set your amount goal and timeframe. From daily to once a month, you can schedule when exactly you would have to top up on your savings. The calendar that it generates even takes your monthly budget into consideration. And have I told you that there is even an alarm that sets off on your desired schedule? Now, there will be no more excuse for forgetting your challenge.

 
You may choose a schedule that fits your cash flow and set if you want to start with low to high savings, same amount or high to low

Rainier launched this application just over a year ago, and I believe that more people need to know about this! It is not restricted to any currency so those who are living outside the Philippines can record their savings using this. It is very practical, even for those who are earning in dollars and cannot follow those 50.00 or 100.00 increments per week.

So, whether you are saving for your P10,000.00 Cebu trip in two months or that P500,000.00 worth of a trip to Europe 5 years from now, this app is perfect for you!

 
And it will immediately reflect on your record

It is so easy to use and the best thing? It is free! (And an Ad-free version will also be launched soon.)

It is March already, I know. But the app can even go back to January, so if you would like to pretend that you started saving in January, there is still time to catch up!
