Put in the Hours.
Can you put in extra hours at work (if on overtime rates then so much the better!). If that’s a no go, what about a second job? Ok, so it sounds about as appealing as a day out with your dear Auntie Gladys right now, but it’s got to be worth it for a week on the Malia beach, right? It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Deliver pizzas, stack shelves, set up a dog walking business (you entrepreneur, you!). Extra cash that you’re not used to having in your pocket quickly adds up.
Go Last Minute
Once you’ve got a tidy stash put away, it’s time to hold your nerve. Don’t be tempted to book too soon. Wait as long as you dare for last minute deals on clubbing holidays to hit the internet, then bag yourself a bargain, getting more for your hard won savings.
Once you’re on that beach, round that pool or in that club, all those late night pizza delivery stints will be well worth it. Malia 2013? It’s on!
