TERRIFIC 2'S TUESDAY
My theme for this week is family vacations. So today I'm going to write about Frugal Traveling
Set a budget and stick to it. Before you even think about where you want to go on your vacation, figure out what you can afford. Vacations are a luxury. You should never go into debt to take a vacation.
Restaurants almost always charge more for their dinner menu while the same food at lunchtime is less expensive. Use this to your advantage and eat your main meal of the day at noon. Picnics are also a great way to save a few dollars. Hit the local grocery store or deli and head to the park. We also look for motels that offer a free continental breakfast.
Load up on healthy snacks, gum, and bottles of water, juice, and milk. There will be plenty of stops along the way where someone will want to consume a chocolate bar in the shape of Mt. Rushmore, so the healthy snacks balance out the splurges.
It's all about great family vacation planning....Your family's vacation style might be finding a perfect balance between lounging by the pool one day followed by non-stop action or sightseeing the next day.
Family vacations are wonderful ways to reconnect with your kids and learn about the world around you Remember, the most important part of a vacation is to spend quality time with your family. I have some wonderful pictures and as soon as I get a good internet connection maybe I'll be able to post them.
Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!
