Here is are a few tips to help you save money while interviewing to become a Flight Attendant. From Hotels, to Food, & Uber rides.
hey what's up guys here to talk to you today about ways to save money when you are headed to your flight an interview first and foremost I want to congratulate all of those that are headed to a flight attendant interview and just stop by the channel to get some interview tips and for those of you that have recently become flight attendants and have sent me messages congratulations to you guys as well for completing training and for those of you that are just now starting the process welcome to my channel go ahead and like and subscribe I always have a great deal of very valuable information for future flight attendants so again smash that like button if you like this video and go ahead and subscribe to the channel so we're gonna dive right in and talk about ways to save money when you're headed to your flight attendant interview first things first now I do realize and understand that not every airline covers travel to and from the interview it's unfortunate it's just the way it is but that's okay because there are ways to save money on that trouble one of those ways is getting on to various apps as well as websites such as kayak or Expedia and these apps websites sell airfare at a much lower rate than booking through the airline but that's not always true so make sure that you sometimes make sure that you also check with the airline that is very important and I have actually help friends get pretty discounted flights through services like kayak and Travelocity and Expedia and all all those various different platforms websites apps that are great for saving money on travel so with that said you fly to the airport where you're gonna be interviewing probably at some hotel call that hotel if you are interviewing out a hotel for the airline call that hotel and see if they have any special rates for people that are flying in and in interviewing to be a flight attendant you will be surprised more times than not the hotel will have special rates for flight attendants that are coming to interview you just have to call the airline is not always going to provide you with that invaluable information so you have to be your own advocate and for the stuff you don't know I'm happy to help so just drop me a line or watch some of my other videos if you're not staying at the hotel that the interview is up because sometimes these hotels are very very expensive check out the app hotel tonight and that app offers unsold rooms that specific day so the day before or the day of the interview you can actually book further out but it actually gets cheaper closer to the day that you're going to stay there in my experience also let's talk transportation so transportation to the airport from home get a friend to take you to the airport or a family member or relative or something like that so that way you're not bearing the expense of travel to the airport once you get to the airport at the interview location almost every Hotel Airport Hotel or hotel close to the airport offers an airport shuttle so you should be able to take the airport shuttle from the airport to the hotel and a really good hotel will actually offer the shuttle from the hotel to your interview location and from the hotel back to the airport if the hotel unfortunately does not offer a shuttle that's okay don't despair you do have lyft and uber but take the share so take uber cool sorry take uber pool or take lyft line etc so take the discounted version of these ride shares so that way you're not breaking the bank on travel let's talk about Airbnb in my experience taking air being the arts are taking maybe staying in an air B&B sorry I have a lot going on today guys staying at an Airbnb is extraordinarily cost-effective I have seen Airbnb s go for 35 to 40 dollars a night the host cooks breakfast the next morning so you're saving money on food and the host will also pick you up and take you back to the airport it doesn't get any better than that so you this you've spent less than 50 dollars in some cases less than 40 and even 30 depending on the city in which you're interviewing in for lodging and that's incredible reach out to friends and family that name live in the city that you're interviewing in I have not to date had a friend or a family member that was not on fire for my success for my next endeavor and so there are definitely family and friends that will allow you to stay with them for your flight tonight interview there's no reason to bear the expense of an expensive hotel if you don't have to if you are just so gung ho on staying in a hotel look into your credit card points you may be able to use your points for travel expenses such as food on the airplane I know Hilton honors members can use points to stay at hotels American Express card holders have $100 travel credit per year depending on the card that you can use onboard the aircraft for various snacks etc so there are so many ways that you can save money and the more and more that I hear about people complaining that it's such an expense to come to this interview I had to take the day off of work it's unpaid then I had to get a hotel then the uber then the lift and then unfortunately they didn't get offered a cjo that that can be a big blow to the chest right and a big an even bigger blow to the wallet so I I really wanted to make this video and actually I kept jotting down various pointer that can help you guys save money because it's so important to me that people are not breaking the bank when it comes to achieving their goal and dream of becoming a 510 because these interviews are not like regular interviews you're not going to interview to be a receptionist down the street gotta show up at 3 o'clock maybe you leave an hour early if you live where I live sometimes it's 2 hours but we won't talk about that traffic is a sore subject where I live for a lot of people so there's that start thinking like a flight attendants so when you get to the hotel don't order room service go to the grocery store and get food inexpensively a TV dinner or something like that a lot of flight attendants do that or bring your own food bring a lunch box pack all of your food in the lunch box and bring it with you to the interview start thinking like a flight attendant because when you think like a fighter 10 you're gonna interview like a flight attendant when you interview like a flight attendant the recruiter is gonna say wow here's somebody that has done a great deal of research already and is very familiar with the lifestyle of being a flight attendant because one of the interview questions is going to be how have you prepared to become a flight attendant and one of the things you want to say is I've done a great deal of research so I know all about lay overs and I know about crash pads etc now that we're on the point of crash pads you can actually stay in a crash pad when you are headed to your interview and crash pads are very inexpensive and you do not have to be appliance in it in most cases to stay in a crash pad if you can demonstrate that you are interviewing for an airline of the crash pad owner or host or what have you will actually allow you to stay in a crash pad for a night which is great because you can you are surrounded with other flight attendants whether it be hot bed or cold bed or whatever the situation may be you can talk to the flight attendants and learn more about the lifestyle really determine if this lifestyle is for you and you can even talk about that in the interview so those are just a few tips and tricks to save money when you're headed to your interview and if if you want to be really really risky like I am you can actually take the red-eye out so Airlines a lot of airlines will fly you out the day prior to your interview and they do this because it's their policy they want you they want to make sure that if there's any delays or cancellations that you get to the interview on time so there's no issues and they don't assume the reliability of you not being on time it is okay to take the red-eye it is a risk I took the red-eye to a mainline interview and had a three-hour like but a little bit about three and a half hour downtime in the airport where I just sat in the chair and just kind of hung out texted friends FaceTime with people and then about an hour before the interview I went in the bathroom yes airport bathroom and changed into my suit hop on the shuttle and then went to the interview location and I was the first one there so the lady that booked the flight for me with the airline since the airline paid for she said I'm so nervous that you're not gonna make it on time I'm so concerned I'm so worried for you and I was actually the first one there so don't think that you're taking a huge tremendous risk by doing this because again there were people that stayed in hotels or people that stayed near B&BS and crash pads that didn't show up to the interview as early as I did and there were a few people that unfortunately did not make it to the interview and you want to make it to the interview on time because they will close the door and wish you the best of luck with reapplying and I know that is very shady and savage but this is the industry so get used to it deal with it and move on with that said please smash that like button the more likes I get it it helps me know that the content that I'm delivering to you guys is usable it's beneficial to you guys it actually motivates me to get out there and get more and more information for you guys for the interview processes for the various Airlines if there's anything in the video that you may want to share with the community drop a comment below I read all of the comments I like or dislike the

11 Quick Ways to Save Money at Home

**11 Quick Ways to Save Money at Home**



View Time:4:3Minutes



Looking for quick ways to save money at home? Here’s 11 great ideas to get the ball rolling. Which one will you try first?

Get a quote from one my trusted professionals and see how much money you could be saving:
#SavingMoney #Budget #RachelCruze
– You guys, I swear by
those three recipes. They are so good, so good. All right, here are 11 different things that you can do at home to
actually save you money. Number one: Make snacks. So instead of buying the
little individual packs of your kids' snacks, buy
the big thing at Costco, and then put it in little bags. This is what I do. It's kind of a pain, I know. But listen, you're gonna
save so much more money doing that. I promise. Number two: Have everyone bring a dish. Yes, so if you are hosting a big party, have everyone bring
something so you're not the only one cooking and
spending all the money on food. Number three: Learn to turn a wrench. I'm preaching to myself
here, people. (laughing) This is good. I've learned
to do a couple of things, and it actually saves you
money if you can fix things like your toilet or your air filters— you can change those out. Different things like that
can save you a lot of money versus calling someone to do it. Number four: Learn to sew. Now I'm not talking about
some like elaborate, beautiful smock dress,
even though I love those. I'm talking about just fixing a button or something that's torn. Sewing it up so you don't have to go buy new clothes. Number five: Organize, organize, organize. Yes, when you start to organize things, you'll find that you don't need half the things you have. You can throw it away
or even sell some stuff— get some money that way. But also, in the end,
you're just gonna feel more refreshed and more organized versus going out and spending more money on stuff that you don't need. In fact, I did this. I took the minimalist challenge. If you don't know what that is, check out the other
episode with The Minimalists, because it was amazing. And I threw out and sold so much stuff, you guys. And it was incredible, trust me. When I say to organize,
oh, I love it so much. Number six: Always negotiate. Winston is famous for
this, calling Comcast every quarter of the year to see if we can get a better rate on our cable. So when you get prices like that, don't just say, "Okay, we'll take it." Ask if you can get a better deal. Number seven: Hang dry your clothes. Now, you might be a little
bit iffy on this one, but trust me. When you actually don't dry your clothes and you let them air dry,
the quality of your clothes lasts longer so you don't have to pay for new clothes as often. Number eight: Share baby gear. Now, I'm not talking about old
bibs and that kind of thing. I'm talking about swings,
like the big stuff. My sister and I did
this. The way our babies have lined up, we don't need a swing. I don't need the swing,
so she takes the swing. And when she doesn't need
the swing, I take the swing, because I end up having a new baby. It works perfectly. So if you can find those big things, find a mom in your area, do that. That will save you a lot of money. Number nine: Don't pay
full price for kid clothes. Listen, they grow out of them so fast, especially if you have little babies. So, do some things like swapping with other moms in your area. Swap clothes or even do consignment sale. My spiritual gift: I
always find the best things at consignment sales. I love them so much, and
you save a ton of money. And number 10: Learn to
say no to fundraising. When there's a knock at your door or the doorbell rings, it's always some sweet middle school kid
trying to sell you things, and some of you, it might be your sweet middle school kids. So there's a part of all of us that wants to help, but when you're dishing out $20 or $30 for every kid that knocks on your door, you're spending a lot of money on stuff that you're not gonna use. So, learn to say no to certain ones and have some boundaries. It's okay. All right, last but not least, save money on checking your insurance. This is huge. And I'm talking about your home insurance, your auto insurance, all those things. Most people forget to do this. They just set up their insurance, and they don't look. But go and see if you
can get a better deal. Go check out our endorsed local providers. In fact, people that do this, they save on average $731 a year. That's a lot of money. So those are some quick,
easy ways, 11 ways in fact, for you to do things at
home to save you money.

Do you ever feel stressed about money? Unless you’re a prince or a preschooler,
you probably said yes. For a lot of people, it always feels like
there’s not quite enough to go around. You’re constantly having to make tough decisions
about what you can forego, and it never feels like you’re really in control of your finances. Well, when you need a bit of inspiration,
look no further than the front of a one dollar bill. I’m talking about this guy: George Washington. Besides being the first president of the United
States, General George Washington was the commander of the rag-tag Continental Army during the
Revolutionary War. He must’ve felt like he never had enough
soldiers to go around, but by making a plan, he was able to lead that army to victory over
the greatest fighting force in the world. You can take a cue from George by becoming commander-in-chief of your finances. Each one of these is a soldier in your army,
and your battle plan is a budget. I know, the word “budget” makes most people
want to go AWOL. In fact, according to a 2016 Gallup poll,
only 32% of couples keep a written budget of any kind. But if you were a soldier, would you want
to follow a general who was making it up as he went along? A lot of people tend to think of budgeting
as prediction–estimating what you’ll make in future months and how you’ll want to
spend it. But the most effective budgets work exclusively
with present dollars. After all, you can’t give orders to soldiers
that don’t exist! So the size of your army is only how much
money you currently have in your bank accounts. And as general, your role is to give every
last one of those soldiers a job to do. So, if you have a total of $10,000 across
all of your accounts, you need to decide how much of that you’re going to spend this
month, and how much you’re going to set aside for savings. Before we can decide how much we want to spend,
we need to know how much we’re spending now. Print out your last 3 months of bank statements,
and put each expense into one of 5 categories: Essentials. These are the things you can’t do without. Rent, utilities, groceries, gas, car payments,
health insurance. Anything you need to live or do your job effectively. Security. These are expenses that increase your financial
stability, like building emergency funds or paying off debts. Don’t double count credit cards in this
category though! If you use a card to buy groceries, that expense
should go in “Essentials”. Goals. This is money you set aside to achieve big
life goals, like saving up to buy a house, starting your own business, or taking a special
vacation. Lifestyle. These are expenses that help you navigate
your social world. Personal grooming and apparel, gifts for friends
and family, gym memberships, even pet needs can go in here. Discretionary. This category is all about treating yourself. Going out to dinner, renting a movie, buying
a video game, or getting a massage. Everyone has their own priorities, but think
of this as a good battle plan template, with the most urgent needs at the top, and the
more flexible ones towards the bottom. Now that you know how much you generally spend
on these categories, you can start assigning your soldiers to next month’s duties. Unless you’re living paycheck to paycheck,
you probably have some money left over–but don’t let those soldiers just sit around! Decide what you’re saving them for. Is it an emergency fund or a Hawaiian vacation? Savings that have explicit purposes are a
lot harder to steal from. Congratulations! You’ve made your first month’s budget
Now how do you make it stick? Number one. Write it down. You can use a spreadsheet, an app, or good
old pencil and paper, but no general ever won a war by keeping all their strategy up here. Number two. Update it. Conditions on the ground will change, so restrategize
at the beginning of every month–and you’ll have new soldiers to deploy in next month’s
battles. Number three. Use advanced technology. Thanks to the dozens of budgeting apps you
can download for your phone, no one has to keep a checkbook longhand anymore. This can be especially helpful for discretionary
spending: now you can know right away whether you can afford that Weird Al album on vinyl. So how you do know you’re budgeting correctly? Well, the most obvious answer is that you’re
less stressed. Imagine enjoying a dinner out without worrying
about whether or not you can afford it. Imagine not holding your breath every time
you check your account balance. You’d be amazed how much you can improve
your mood just by introducing more clarity and control into your finances. Like a lot of good financial habits, the point
of budgeting isn’t to have more money… it’s to be happier with the money you have. And that’s our two cents! We want to tell you about the new PBS Digital Studios series: Say It Loud. A celebration of Black History and culture and it's impact on how we live today. Hosts Evelyn From The Internets and Azie Dungey, give you a comedic take on identity and pop culture.
