Is the new year already getting you down? It’s never too early to start planning your next vacation! The first step is deciding where to go, but after that you may be concerned about how you can afford it. The simplest way to save for your dream getaway is to figure out exactly how much it will cost. The number may seem scary, but once you break it down it should be less intimidating. Figure out how long you have to save the money, and make a plan for how much you should put away each week (or month depending on your timeframe). If that amount is still too much for your budget, change your destination or even give yourself more time to save up. Though the extra expense may not seem worth it right now, enjoying a little time for yourself or your family should always be a priority.
