8 Ways To Keep Your Family Vacation Resolution

    8 Ways To Keep Your Family Vacation Resolution

    Going on a family vacation can be costly. However, with some creativity and discipline, here are eight ways to save up for your family vacation. 

    1. Set a budget: Before you start saving for your family vacation, determine how much you need to save. Take into account accommodation, food, transportation, and activities.
    2. Cut down on other expenses: To save money for that family vacation, you need to make some sacrifices. You can start by eating out less, make coffee at home and take it to work, and avoid shopping for non-essential items. Wait as long as possible to replace digital devices... or consider purchasing gently used gadgets
    3. Use a vacation savings account: Open a separate savings account specifically for your family vacation. This will help you keep track of your progress and avoid dipping into the savings for other purposes. 
    4. Sell unwanted items: Take stock of items in your home that you no longer need or use, and sell them. You can hold a garage sale or sell them online through platforms like eBay, Facebook Marketplace, or Craigslist. The money earned from selling unwanted items can go directly towards your vacation fund.
    5. Cut back on subscriptions: Evaluate your monthly subscriptions, such as streaming services, gym memberships, and magazine subscriptions. You can also negotiate with service providers to lower your monthly fees.
    6. Create a family vacation jar: Get a jar or container and label it as your family vacation fund. Encourage everyone in the family to contribute loose change or any spare cash they have. You'll be surprised how quickly loose change can add up over time.
    7. Plan ahead: Start planning for your vacation early to take advantage of discounts and promotions. Booking flights and accommodation in advance can save you a significant amount of money. Additionally, planning ahead allows you to save gradually over an extended period, making it less stressful on your finances.
    8. Use reward points: Take advantage of reward points and miles from credit card purchases, loyalty programs, and frequent flyer programs. These points can be used towards flights, accommodation, and other travel-related expenses.

    Taking a family vacation doesn't mean that you have to max out your credit cards. With discipline and creativity, you can find unique ways to save money and make your dream vacation a reality.
