Can't save money you don't have0

Umm, Get a job. you can't very well save money if there is none coming in.
If and when you get a job, set up direct deposit of your pay then have X amount automatically withdrawn and sent to a separate savings account the day after every pay period deposit.
To decide what X is, figure out how much you'll need and when you'll have to pay for the trip. Then calculate how many weeks there are between the first deposit and the date payment is reguired. If it's $1000 trip and you have ten weeks til the trip needs to be paid for, auto deduct $100/week.1
