1st Vacation Deposit

I have the first deposit for our Vacation fund YAY :)  A few weeks ago I had mentioned that I put some of the kids old clothes into the Just Between Friends Sale and I just received my check.  It was not for as much as I would have liked but you know what I donated the remaining items to those in need and I felt good about that.  So our 1st deposit for Vacation is for $29.41.

I also think what I will do  starting on our next trip tothe grocery I will take what we saved in coupons and store coupons and add that to my savings along with keep the change at the end of the month oh and do not forget the rebates that I receive in the mail. 

I have not descied what our goal Amount is but we are figuring 5 days and driving, meals and we will stay with family so we will have to estimate it out.  I am gonna say $800 give or take and this just may be a low ball amount or if I can save more  then the more the merrier!!

Congrats on starting your vacay fund. In my head I'm a frugal, budgeting mom. The reality is that I can't stick to it or get my family on board.

I'm returning your UPB visit. Nice to 'meet' you. I'm your newest follower!
