We all love vacationing. Can it be done on a tight budget? Absolutely! Our vacation budget has always been minimal. Prior to getting married I worked for USAirways. OH the vacations we took! California….the Bahamas…..New York City!! All of the travel was FREE…we only paid for the lodging & tried to pick places with mass transit (subways, busses etc). Those were the days!! I married young and we had our first child in our first year of marriage. Both my husband and I were still in school and trying to make ends meet…which was very hard with a new baby. Vacations were out of the question for the first year. After the birth of our second child we were itching for a family vacation and so we got very creative so we could afford one. We started to get back on our feet and along came baby #3…..followed by #4. Our vacationing budget got even tighter and travel became much trickier (have you been on a plane with multiple kids?)
Over the next few weeks I’m going to be posting about vacationing on a budget as well as traveling with kids many kids. I’m hoping it will save you some dollars as well as some sanity on your next vacation!
