Ways to Help you Save for Your Beach Vacation

Save for Your Beach Vacation

If you currently live on the East Coast, you’re going through one of the coldest Winters of all time with snow upon snow. I know for me, as I freeze my tail off, all I can do is dream about a vacation someplace warm. With a lot of people taking beach vacations right now to destinations like the Riviera Maya and Punta Cana to get away from the cold, there is the potential that for some destinations the prices have gone up due to the demand. If you are anything like me, it can be hard to save up for a vacation as you spend your money on a lot of different things that you might not need. If you’re looking for ways to save so you can go on that vacation you’ve been dreaming about, these are some things that you can try to do.

One idea to help you save so you can afford your trip is to make your own coffee. For most people, including myself, they can’t get their days started without having coffee. With this most of them head to places like Starbucks everyday where they buy their coffee and usually spend at least $5 per cup. If you add this up for the entire week, this does cost a lot of money. I know for some making their own coffee can be difficult as they don’t have the time or don’t like the taste, but doing this can help you save.

A second idea to help you save for that vacation is to stop eating out. When I recently started saving for a past vacation I was looking at what my largest expense was and this was it. If you have the time and are able to make your own meals, this will help you save. With most people they usually go out for lunch during the work week and sometimes go out to dinner with friends, but if you are able to cut this out, it will help you reach your savings goal more quickly.

This might be the toughest thing to do for some now due to all the snow we’re getting, but try to avoid driving to work and instead walk or ride your bike. This idea is more for those who aren’t dealing with really bad weather as I know for me it’s impossible to walk anywhere in this snow. While gas prices have been lower as of lately, this is definitely an expense you can cut out by walking or riding your bike.

A fourth idea and something I wasn’t able to do but you could possibly is cancelling your cable. For most people with their cable bills, they are usually paying over $100 a month for channels they don’t even watch. With things like Hulu, iTunes and Netflix, there are a lot of cheaper options available that will allow you to stay up to date with your favorite TV shows while allowing you to pay a lot less.

I know it can sometimes be hard to save up for a vacation as it’s hard to cut your costs, but just remember that it will be all worth it when you’re lounging on a beach with a drink in your hand while you work on your tan.
