    If you are on a really tight budget, be vigilant about watching out for sales. There are a lot of sales especially online, you just have to catch them at the right time. Also, local travel agents often sell many packages that come out to be much cheaper than buying things separately. Learning to cook your own meals even when traveling will also save a lot of money as well as help you meet new friends. Also, when in a city, try and avoid taxis but instead walk and take public transportation when possible.
