How do you afford to travel so much?

Many of the trips I go on now are paid for by the companies I'm working with. But I was still traveling quite a bit before any trips were paid for. Traveling doesn't have to be expensive if you're careful. The first thing you have to do is live a lifestyle that allows you the time and money to travel. Live cheaply, and save for the next adventure.

Here are a few resources I use to travel cheaply:
