Tip 21- Make Saving Automatic

Want to go on a dream vacation but never seem to have the funds?  Start saving now so you’ll be set for next summer.  It’s Easy!

  1. Figure out how much your vacation will cost.
  2. Decide if you want to put money away monthly or per paycheck.
  3. Divide the cost by however many months or pay periods there are until your trip.
  4. Have that amount automatically transferred into a vacation savings account.  You can do this either through your bank or if you receive your paycheck via direct deposit select that the amount goes directly to your vacation account.
