How to Take a “Stay-Cation” and Save Money

Vacations can be expensive, particularly if it involves booking flights, hotels and car rental and then setting aside spending money for both entertainment and usually a lot of eating out. A good method to save money is to have a ‘stay-cation’. No hotel bookings needed, no flights you can save some money by eating at home cooked meals and you can use all the ‘extra’ money saved to do things that you love. That’s already a huge saving. One thing that I found common is that many people have never truly explored their home city.

I lived and worked in London for 6 years, during that time, I may have passed many of the landmarks, but I never actually visited most of them. The same could be said for the 5 years I spent in working in Tokyo. Digging just a little deeper, it’s easy to discover plenty of hidden treasure troves of entertainment and things to do. Even if you’re not living in a big city, there may be that restaurant that you’ve never got round to trying out; or that gallery that you pass everyday but never found the time to pop in and explore; or the hiking trails that arch around your town. There’s plenty to explore.

What Exactly is a “Stay-Cation”?

Wikipedia defines it as: “A period in which an individual or family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance.” So consider… just because you’re technically “grounded” doesn’t mean you can’t discover new horizons and local pleasures to make your heart soar. If you’re on board, let’s explore a few ways to make it happen and save money in the process. Let’s get started…
