This is the fourth money-saving tip from, my favorite source of printable coupons. Kim Danger is the Family Savings Expert for and she has written these 11 money-saving tips to help you cut costs in your household and save up to $10,000 a year. Here is the third tip from Kim Danger:

Simpler Vacations
“You don’t have to give up your family vacation this year, but scaling back is a good idea. Getting creative with your vacation budget will allow you to take a much-needed break without breaking the bank. Consider staying closer to home instead of flying somewhere. A weekend in a nearby city can be fun if you approach it with a sense of adventure. Try sites like Priceline to save 40% or more off your hotel expenses. There are even websites and forums devoted to cluing you in to how much to bid. Check out for discounts on admission fees.
Total Savings: $800-$1200 per year

The reality is that many people simply don’t take a vacation because there is no vacation category in their budget. Then your mission becomes to find fun inexpensive things that you and your family can do close to home during a “vacation time”. Another way to still take a vacation but spend a lot less, is to spend vacation time visiting friends and family that live in a different city or state. This way you are spending a lot less on food & lodging expenses by staying with people you know.

Depending on where you’re going, you may find certificates in the area. On a recent trip to Las Vegas, we saved a ton of money while eating at really nice restaurants. I paid like $2 each for several $25-off certificates.
