Act 208

Your money’s not on vacation even if you are

It’s always amazed me that some people on vacation seem to take a vacation from common sense when it comes to money. Your money’s not on vacation even if you are. So today, I shopped for deals. Got the breakfast special on the ferry, chose the least expensive of three accommodation options, bought a few coupons to the amusement park rather than the wrist bands and ordered take out pizza for dinner rather than eating in. Still had just as much fun but spend alot less money.

Another way to save a bit of money on vacation is to bring your own coffee and filters so you can enjoy a fresh brew in the morning without having to deal with the yucky hotel coffee or stop in at the drive thru or worse, pay a premium price for an average brew at a hotel restaurant. It’s less convenient but convenience can be expensive. So leave it behind and enjoy what vacations are made for. Fun. And fun is not measured by how much you pay. At least it’s not for me.
