    Hello everyone on India Travel Forum.

    I have recently shifted base to India from Canada. I had been in Canada for 8 years and as you all probably know the living expenses in Canada have risen incredibly with a family and only one earner in the house it had started becoming difficult.

    Although shifting to India has helped, I have also realized that in India the expenses are on the higher side too.

    I know there are a lot of people out there who have some fab tips and tricks on saving money and a way to get around to managing very well while living in India, as well as enjoying the small fun, trips out to restaurants and holidays.

    I always believe that it's good to get advice from anyone.

    Waiting to hear about some money-saving suggestions.
