    Default Saving for a trip?

    Saving money for a trip?So this question is more for young people or college students. So I am 18 years old college student and many people I know went on vacations this spring break, unfortunately I wasn't able because I wasn't working right now because I really don't have time currently. I am planning on starting to work this summer, because right now is hard to find a job, I worked for 2 months in November to January making minimum wage. Worked a total of 32 hours and made $500 total. Yes I only worked 8 hours per week/2 days per week. Next spring break I am planning on going to Cancun Mexico with friends. I want to know how much should I save, how much hours should I work to be able to save for those vacations. I made only $500 in 2 months wooing two times a week, 4 hours per day, which is too little I know. So for you that make minimum wage how much you save to go on vacations? How many hours you work per week and how many hours you work while studying. I want to buy a car and be able to go on vacations too, I will work of course while studying but I want to know how many hours should I work per week during college and how many days per week to be able to save for a car, trip and be able to study without killing myself.

    Sorry if it's wrote incorrectly or something, I'm on my phone.

    Help would he appreciated

    Little background info:
    I started working since I was 15 and was told to save every month a small percentage of what I earned well, I didn't do that... regret it hardcore.
    Anyhow I'm not going on vacation this year I hope, out of my own choice, if everything works in my favor I'll make around 7000+ euro in total and I'll try to save as much as possible, just because of reasons.

    Around how much money you make per year? If I work a year making minimum wage working part time I can earn at least $10,000+

    It sounds too little for a year but it's okay because it's minimum, a person that makes $100,000 a year earns $2000 per week which is really good.

    Well it differs for me monthly I work around 8-12 hours a week and make about 300-500 dollar a month and sometimes more due to bonuses and whatmore so I guess 4000-7000, but yeah and then we get a sort of free money thing (not everyone the same amount) I get 350 dollar because no dad my whole life.
    so thatd be an extra idk 4000?
