It's romantic. It's beautiful. And wow, can it be expensive.

WalletPop's Jason Cochran talks to long-term Paris resident Margie Rynn, author of the newly published second edition of the award-winning guide book Pauline Frommer's Paris, about how a person of modest means can make a Parisian dream trip happen.

From timing your discount shopping perfectly to finding an affordable short-stay apartment of your own to dodging the crowds at the Louvre, there's a strategy to turning your bon voyage (a "great trip") into a bon marché (a "great deal").
