The good thing is no matter where you live, there’s a sunspot nearby that probably offers great packages. It’s time to focus, get your game on and save. If you’re going with some friends, you can keep each other in check . Support each other by having nights in instead of heading out and spending those sun bucks on entertainment. Keep your eye on the prize and you’ll be tanning in February on a white sandy beach.
2. Household savings
Hey, you’re not only going to save yourself some money but you also help the planet out. All good things right?
3. Fast track your bank account
Selling off those things you don’t really use anymore could make you some serious cash for your trip. Sell on ebay or even a local site like craigslist.org or kajiji.
4. Walk Away from the Credit Card
Chances are, you’re going to need your credit card during your tropical getaway. This money saving tip is a pretty important one as you may need it when you get back from your vacation. You should be paying it off instead of putting charges on it. Take your credit card out of your wallet and put it in your passport. This will remind you why you’re not buying the latest trendy boots for the winter.
Best thing to do is create a food budget and then write a grocery list based on what you can afford. Stick to your list troop, do not get distracted. You can utilize coupons also or get loyalty cards that hook you up with a discount. Make your food at home and even create mass quantities of food at one time. You can easily freeze and reheat soups, lasagna and casseroles.
