Seeing is believing -- creating something is a cathartic way of handling stress or anxiety, as saving can be stressful.
Create a colleague, poster, or drawing that depicts the idea or item for which you are saving. If it is the idea of financial stability, find images that represent that, such as a nice house, a car you always wanted, or activities you hope to enjoy.
If you are saving for a vacation, find pictures of the place you want to go to paste them together. You can hang your reminder in the office to motivate you throughout the day (especially when you face difficult challenges) or you can leave it out in your bedroom as a nice reminder after waking up.
There are plenty ideas for vision boards all over the net.
