See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
DH and I got married almost 5 years ago (Dec 9th) and we didn't really have a real honeymoon, just one night so I have been wanting to take a trip with just him and I somewhere cool without the kids, to kind of celebrate 5 years being married. But our anniversary is in the middle of the crazy birthday/holiday season so I am planning it for October instead. I am SO excited to go. We need roughly $1500 for the hotel/plane tickets/spending money and it feels like it will take forever to save that much!! But I have a little time too, lol. I have been trying to be really good about not eating out, buying expensive food and unneccesary things, etc.
I work for a friend of mine doing scanning because she wants to go paperless but has about 10 5 drawer filing cabinets full of files so I have lots of work to do to earn money which is good. All of those paychecks are going into our vegas fund and the money we have direct deposited into savings from DH's paychecks is going towards birthday/christmas money. There are 4 birthdays, our wedding anniversary and chirstmas between November and January so it is an expensive time for us. Gotta plan ahead!!!
Anyway, I welcome any ideas on how I can further pinch pennies to save as much as I can.
Well it turns out DH doesn't want to go to Vegas but we are still going to go somewhere else so I still need to save money. I don't know where though so I don't know how much to save. Dang him! LOL!
