Every Monday we provide you with our past weekend’s agenda to show you how you can continue to do what you love on the weekend while using your common cents.
Total Estimated Savings: $97.00
Total Amount Spent: $127.00
A weekend spent in San Francisco fit into my budget!! See how I did it in the tables below:
- Chose your airline wisely: Joe and I fly allegiant air even though the airport is almost 30 minutes further from our house than the international airport in our city. It’s worth it because we save at least $100 per ticket!
- Pack light: Airlines will make as much money off of your trip as they can. We were able to squeeze our weekend supplies into one carry-on bag, and that saved at least 50 bucks!
- Savor your food but don’t stuff just because you are on vacation. We ate at new restaurants when we were hungry, but we didn’t force it just because it was a novelty.
- I took out my allotted spending money as I normally do every pay period; however for the two weeks leading up to my trip, I made conscious attempts to save as much as I could—that meant less eating out and shopping in my everyday environment. The trade off was that the only “extra” expense required by my trip was the flight. Once again, patience pays off
