January is fast-coming to a close and February is on the horizon. How are your vacation plans coming along? If you are wondering whether or not your budget will accommodate an added vacation expense then I have a thought. First off, whatever you do, do not charge your vacation. In other words, do not finance your time off. If you simply cannot afford it, then wait until you can. At the same time, remember a vacation does not have to break the bank. Generally speaking, the longer you are away the more money you will spend. But remember, you can take a shorter vacation which can be just as impactful. Take a look at your budget, your schedule, talk to your travel mates and then get planning! Have a great day!
