2. Smart Budgeting: Start Well in Advance
Filling up those account books with your everyday expenditures and savings is not just for nerds! The process practically helps in keeping track of finances, and subsequently helps you become a stronger saver. So before you embark upon planning and saving for your dream vacation, plan a budget: how much you would need to spend before and during vacation, how much money you already have in your vacations fund and how much more you need to save. When you have a sharp goal ahead, it gets easier to start saving.
Once you know an approximate number, start working towards it. Save small amounts every day to gradually expand your vacation fund. In case you are not a number-lover and are too lazy to maintain accounts of your own, allow one of the many mobile apps to do it for you!
