    The holidays are so great: Family time, vacation, and unprecedented credit card debt. If you're feeling a little drained this week, you're not alone. Your bank account has a hangover, too. But, a new year is on the horizon — 365 days of chances to get your financial shit together. The best news is that it doesn't take much effort to save a significant sum. Say, $1,000?

    We rounded up a heap of dummy-proof saving tips, did some calculations, and came up with 10 ways to help you save $1K. Rated on a difficulty scale of 1-10, we tailored these tricks to be reasonable and flexible to your own particular budget, lifestyle, and goals. Some of these tips will get you to $1K in two months. Others could take a year. $1,000 isn't a life-changing sum, but if you're saving up for a trip or paying down a debt, it can make a serious dent. Above all, it's attainable — no investments, no risks, and (almost) no math. So, why not?
