Tip #1 

Grab a glass jar and put it somewhere visible that you will see every day. Every morning, put $3 into the jar. In one year, you will have more than $1,000! Enough to take a lovely trip.

Tip #2

If you have a credit card, get one with travel rewards. Every dollar you spend should be earning you something, a mile, a hotel point, anything!
