Before packing your tackle box and gear and jumping in your car, it’s important to save money and plan before you go.

Define your goal and make cuts
If you want to set aside $1,000 for your trip, write down that goal and place it somewhere so you can see it daily like your refrigerator. Now that you have a set goal you wish to achieve, you’ll need to make a list of what you currently spend money on every day and try to see where you can make some cuts. Then, determine a budget that will help you obtain your goal of saving money for your vacation.
