This is the fourth money-saving tip from Coupons.com, my favorite source of printable coupons. Kim Danger is the Family Savings Expert for Coupons.com 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 Entertainment.com 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.
