We do typically go on a vacation- we usually save for it and can get cheeper deals since my husband travels so much.  We usually get the hotel rooms for free or nearly free with his points, a few times we have even flown for no cost- other wise we drive, pack snacks and meals so we don't have to buy out.  We also try to use our memberships to museums that we have purchased here, most of them have many out of state partners that we can use.

We try to go on vacations once or twice a year. We budget for it well in advance.

As a family we haven't gone in awhile! I just went camping with my SIL and it took me a while to save money! But I had a great time!

We will do mini vacations in the summer, but nothing big yet.

 we usually go on a vacation every year. sometimes they are not big ones. but when we go on a big one we book our hotel when we get our taxes back. and buy up non-perishable things we are going to take with us.
