If you have a baby, you know how hard it can be on your budget! I’ve talked before about saving money when you’ve got a baby. Those were all ways to save on specific baby items like clothes and furniture. If you want to save for vacation, you’re going to have to dig a little deeper!
Save for vacation
Just because you have a baby doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a family vacation! You might have to get a little creative and get in the zen savings mode to do it though. I’ve got three ways to save for vacation to get you started.
Eat (and make) all of your meals at home
This might seem like a no brainer to you seasoned budget savvy moms, but if you’re used to eating out or ordering in frequently, this might be tough! Though if you really want to save for vacation, this can save you a lot of money. My sister and I were just discussing today how expensive even fast food has become. The last time I had fast food was probably 4 months ago. I spent almost $17 on just my son and me for burgers, fries and drinks! If you want to save for vacation, you can’t spend $17 on two people very often and still have “fun” money.
I’m sure you use Pinterest, right? Search for cheap and easy meals. You’ll find thousands of ideas! Eating (and making) all of your meals at home rather than going out can save you a lot of money. It’s worth the sacrifice!
Don’t buy your coffee at the drive-thru (or the walk-in)
Oh, I’ve hit a nerve! I know you’re saying, “Don’t make me give up my (favorite coffee place)!” This doesn’t have to be a permanent sacrifice, but I know a lot of you probably hit that coffee place up several times a month. Make your coffee at home and get some yummy creamer. Again, utilize sites like Pinterest to find similar drink recipes. You’ll still get your caffeine fix, but you’ll have more money to save for vacation!
