When I think about taking a vacation, I dream about sipping a cocktail on the tropical islands of Hawaii or going up to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and sharing a sweet kiss. Did I say dream?
Not everyone has all the money or time in the world, so in recent years stay-cations have become very popular. The fact that you don't have to spend on hotels, car rental or even on food are all attractive qualities and reasons to have a staycation.
While relaxing on your vacation this year, don't relax that budget too much! It's
never fun to come home to the stress of having spent too much while you were away.
Thankfully there are lots of easy ways to save while enjoying your trip.
Start racking up the savings before your vacation even begins by taking advantage of gas

sandwiched in between The Firstborn and The Baby (My actual

We planned to leave after work, drive four hours to Hilton Head,
South Carolina, so we could celebrate the end of homework, a
seemingly endless stream of school events, and my second tour of
duty as The Oldest Kindergarten Room Mom Ever in World History.
Oops. What about Daisy? I made a quick, last minute call
to our expensive Doggie Day Care, only to find there was no room at
the Inn. So, I put out an APB on Facebook. While there were lots of
suggestions, the clock was ticking, ticking, ticking.
We often don't have to go far or pay a small fortune for great activities. It's easy to overlook museums, parks or other local and culturally rich organizations or places that are right in our backyard.
