I know a small number of people who have money at any given time that they can use for a vacation. I am definitely not one of them. For those of us who don’t have a large amount of disposable income, when we want to go somewhere on vacation we have to save up those extra dollars and cents.
I prepare for every vacation that I take with my family. Months ahead of our trips I plan out activities based on our budget and then saved the money that we need. Sometimes our budget is really tight and sometimes it is more flexible.
Saving money can sometimes be hard, or hard all the time if you are on a tight budget.
There are ways of making each paycheck go a little further and leaving you with a little bit to set aside each month. I have been under tight budgets and found ways of saving money that were easier for me. Some ways to save money are a little extreme and time consuming and I don’t always have the patience, so I want to share the easier ways with you all.
