Traveling is a great way to distance yourself from the everyday chaos. It allows for retrospection. As a result, you end up knowing yourself a little better. While the getaway itself may be just what you need, the planning required may be an entirely different story. To make the most of your time away, plan according to your budget. The last thing you want is to return even more stressed than you left.
1. Keep all luggage within the weight limit. If you exceed the weight, or the amount of luggage, you’ll end up paying extra. Save that money for an excursion instead.
2. If you can, opt for an all-inclusive stay. Though all-inclusives seem expensive at first glance, they tend to be much cheaper than the cost per meal.
3. Use Excel to create a spreadsheet of your monthly expenses. Decide from there how much you can spend while away without later going crazy about it. Organization is key, and a lot of times you’ll realize that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a lot of fun.
