It has been a long winter for all of us and it seems as if it is finally becoming spring. In just a few weeks the children will be emptying the classroom and America will be in vacation mode.
Hopefully, you are planning some time off. Whether a vacation or a “staycation”, hopefully some down time is in your plans. To the beach, an amusement park, a natural park, maybe a historical site – we will be on the move. I am guessing that since we are approaching this “season” that the increase in fuel prices is somewhat affected by this time of the year. But, that is a different subject.
Along with your dates and destination, have you consider how you will pay for vacation? Hopefully, you have been saving since last year and your trip is taken care of. Sadly, that is not the case for most people.
Start now, beginning with next month’s budget, build your vacation money into the plan. Each month set that money aside and have a debt free, relaxing time off. When you use the cash you saved, you can most definitely beat the credit card bills home regardless of what the traffic looks like on the way home!
When is the best time to start? Now!
