Happy New Year! Hopefully by now, most of you are settling back into your work routine and hitting the gym desperatly trying to reverse the holiday over-indulgence. And if you’re anything like me, planning your 2010 vacay(s).
I’d mentioned in an earlier post that my constant travel talk drives my husband crazy. He’s incredibly sweet and says otherwise, but I know better. He’d rather see where the year takes us and go somewhere if, and when, it makes sense. I, on the other hand, obsessively search airfare deals, new hotspots and haute hotels. I’m a planner. It’s in my DNA. I can’t help it.
So, I’ve decided to take my vacay fate into my own hands. I’ve concocted a plan to take my husband on a vacation this spring. I’m planning it and I’m paying for it.
In order to pay for the vacay, I’m going to start saving $20 a day for the next 4 months. This will give me approximately $2400 by the end of April. Below is a list of the frivolous faux pauxs that I’ve decided to cut of my life ASAP so I can save my $20 per day.
- Green Tea from Starbucks or other neighborhood coffee shops (approx. $5 per day)
- Weekly blowout which is $45 (approx. $6 per day)
- My cab habit (approx. $10 per day)
Now I just need to decide where to go within my budget. Any ideas?
