Throughout the year, I make a point of taking a portion of each of my paychecks and putting it in a travel savings account. Depending on what's going on in my life, I might save more or less each month, but I use that money to pay for bits and pieces of my vacation, so we don't have to spend a huge chunk of cash all at once right before we leave. Other ways I save are by only shopping the clothing sales (I still buy good stuff, but not at full price), getting free salon services by running my stylist's blog and social media accounts, taking on freelance writing gigs and meal planning, so I don't overspend at the grocery store. TripAdvisor polled their users to find out how they spent their travel dollars and what they were willing to sacrifice to save for vacations.
