I am in desperate need for VACATION!
This week (weeks) has been insanely busy! I am counting down the days until we head to Cancun! My daughter has the countdown going on our market board and I have one going on my phone. Like– this needs to happen SOON!
So we booked the flight and hotel back when we had no clue where our money was headed. It was like a wild teenager– just went and did whatever it wanted. 🤦🏻♀️
Now that we are really keeping an eye on things we’ve had to stay intentional about this trip. Flight has been paid for but the hotel will want money upon arrival. So…
1. We have been setting aside money each week to pay at check-in. (We will use our credit card but don’t shame us! We have the money saved!!)
2. I spent time researching distances and transportation options to and from the airport to have a good estimate of what taxis will run us.
3. I’ve been setting aside my daughters allowance so that she has plenty of her spending money! (First time to Mexico and first to bargain… I anticipate a lot of shopping!!)
4. We have researched excursions and outings in the area and have a list of what those run
Bottom line– we are researching, planning and saving!! Preparation is KEY!
How do you financially plan for trips?? I’d love to hear!! Thanks for reading!
