    Default any tips on saving money to go on a vacation



    My oldest will be going to see her uncle this fall and he will be paying half and I need to know what you guys would suggest to save money for this and I want to start saving now. He is in Switzerland, he has been there for six years so this is a big thing for him to have family come see him. My mom will be going with her. Thank you in advance.

    Default any tips on saving money to go on a vacation

    In our state we can return bottles and cans from soda to the store

    for a nickel. My brother and I managed to make over a hundred dollars

    in cans for our vacation when we were younger.

    You could have her take any good condition unwanted clothes to a

    resale shop.

    Have a yard sale. You can almost always find things you want to sell.

    Save ALL the change you get in a bank. I save all our change in my

    daughters piggy bank for her and it adds up quickly if you use cash.

    Some debit cards now have a saving program where they round up the

    amount of the purchase to the next dollar and put the "change" in a

    savings account. You could check with your bank. It won't make a HUGE

    difference on each purchase, but adds up quick.

    Default any tips on saving money to go on a vacation

    Back in February, I started saving my change, and my dollar bills,

    and some random $5 dollar bills. At the end of the night, I just

    cleaned my purse out, dumped the change into my jar, then slipped my

    $1's into a lock box.



    I decided to wait until I had at least $100 in $1's before I would

    deposit it into a vacation savings account. By the time I managed to

    get the change cashed in, and get to the bank, I had just under $200

    to deposit.



    Because I also do stuff online to earn checks, I decided to also

    deposit those into the account, as well.



    When we got our taxes back, I did get a boost of $500, but all said

    and done, from online earnings, 1 $15 birthday check, and all of my

    change & dollar bill savings, I have just shy of $1500 in a savings

    account after just a few months.



    Now, granted, we have the extra money right now, where we don't miss

    the change and dollars. If you are squeezed tighter for cash, that's

    not the best option, obviously, but even doing it for a bit can give

    her some spending money.



    Other things to help her earn money:



    -have a yard sale

    -sell baked goods at the yard sale

    -buy king sized candy bars on sale, and have her sell them to

    friends & family as a fund raiser

    -do chores for neighbors: mow lawn, rake leaves, clean house, plant

    flowers, etc

    -babysit

    -get a part time job

    -do errands for neighbors





    Hope she has fun!
