Following your way of thinking, we might suggest neilio and others that, if they want to make money for travelling, they should NOT:

– have children;

– buy Macs, PCs are also computers and way cheaper;

– go to the movies so often, once in a month is alright;

– buy expensive cars, anyone cheap that will take you wherever you want is fine;

– talk on the phone more than 30 minutes a month;

To my surprise and endless amazement, I found that having a child has actually made me save money. This happens because I no longer have any time at all to spend on any of the money pits of my previous life – movies, shopping, travel, and so on. The cost of diapers is negligible compared to these, though I understand that this might change once she goes to school…
