    Vacations can be expensive, but there are ways to lower your costs. If you have a CIBC Aventura® credit card, redeem Aventura Points for flights, hotels and vacation packages.
    If you're handy, do it yourself. Buy your own materials and tackle small projects around your home.
    Sometimes 0% financing can be an attractive offer, but read the terms and conditions. You pay no interest, but you may not qualify for rebates or other dealer incentives.
    Set a budget and list all your wedding expenses, such as the wedding planner, caterer and DJ. It'll show you how much you need to save, and where you may be able to cut costs.
    Save now so you won't pay later. If your down payment is more than 20% of the property price, you can avoid mortgage default insurance.

    How much do you want to save?

    Consult multiple sources and factor in any discounts before setting your savings goal.

    Check out online travel agencies, discount flight apps and home-sharing sites for deals.
    Focus on renovations that increase your home's resale value. Fix up your kitchen or remodel your bathroom instead of installing a pool.
    Trade in your old vehicle to lower your costs. Check the Canadian Black Book and local car listings to find out what your car is worth.
    Find ways to cut wedding expenses. Reduce your guest list, make your own invitations and scour local buy-and-sell listings for decor.
    If you're a first-time home buyer, you may be able to borrow money from your RRSP to help raise your down payment.
    Once you set your savings goal, decide how much you can cut back every month, then set up automatic deposits into a savings account.
