Of course there is no universal formula. Everyone lives and travels differently.

You can save a lot of money on accommodation and food.

You will find inexpensive accommodation in dorms of hostels. For example sleeping in six or eight-bed-rooms. There you will also quickly meet other travellers, which is a lot of fun.

Take your own simple camping gas stove and a small pot (total cost about EUR 30) with you and cook yourself. It is definitely very inexpensive.
Just compare one meal bought at the supermarket (pasta, vegetables, tomatoes: EUR 3) and compare it to the price of a junk-food-menu (EUR 6-8).
