1. Make it a Priority
If there’s a place that you’ve always wanted to visit, make it a priority to go. Now. That may mean sacrificing things like spontaneous shopping trips, morning Starbucks, and the latest tech gadget, but skipping out on those purchases means more travel money.
2. Work Overseas
If you’re worried about being able to finance a whole trip ahead of time, look for opportunities to work while you’re away. Some farms offer room and board in return for some manual labor. Other common travel employment opportunities include everything from tending bar, to teaching English. Picking up a job while you’re away can be a great way to extend your vacation.
