We all know that taking that annual summer vacation can get expensive. But with a little early preparation, you and your family can have some fun in the sun without breaking the bank!

Try out a few of these ideas today to save for the summer:

  • Set up a Vacation-specific Savings Account. Set up automatic monthly payments into a savings account specifically for vacation. If you start now, you’ll have a good foundation by the time summer rolls around.

    Keep it open and keep the deposits flowing if you want to have even more cash on hand for next year’s vacay!
  • Book Flights and Rooms ASAP. The earlier you book, the better the price. Try locking down your destination as soon as you can, so you can get the ball rolling on airfare or lodging. 

    TIP: Some vacation spots are cheaper than others. Be open to choosing a vacation destination where you can get a great deal on a cheap flight!

  • Start Prepping for a Spring Garage Sale. Everyone has some items hanging around the house that they don’t use any more. Start going through your belongings, gathering items to sell during the spring garage sale season. This will give you some extra cash for your upcoming trip, and clear out some clutter at the same time. It’s a win-win!
