Vacationing has always been our favorite thing. My husband and I had made an agreement that we should take weekend trips at least once every two months and a long vacation every two years. So saving money for these leisure times should be in the priority’s list.
When we went on a vacation to visit my family in the Philippines, we have saved a lot of money. That money had accommodated our plane tickets, local transportation expenses, and hotel and resort accommodations. I can say that we did a good job with that. Plus we also had a budget for shopping for homecoming gifts. I did some shopping online, too. Because we were very concerned about the excess baggage possibilities, most of the presents were shipped thru the online store’s shipping services.
What I liked about the idea was, I found an online store that is based in Asia. Who knew that I can shop for clothing and accessories at Zalora for my sisters and parents with the convenient shipping door-to-door? Just like what I can do here in the US. I was very glad my sisters loved the summer dresses that I bought.
So traveling overseas had been light for us since we didn’t bring too much on our previous vacation.
