3 Ways To Cut Costs On Your Vacation

Vacations are goals in life. Everything we do points toward the things that we look forward to doing, and vacations are right up there in the list of goals for us all. Scaling the Rockies, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, skiing the Alps: goals galore! The problem is, we all have grand ideas for our vacations, with not so grand wallets to go with them. Getting the most from your vacation in terms of experience is vitally important. Getting the most for your cash? Well, that’s just essential!

Travel costs are spiraling upward at the moment, with vacation companies upping their prices and things like war and terrorism spoiling the tourism industry. The thing is, planning a vacation isn’t just as simple at throwing a dart at a map and choosing to get on a plane. You need to shop around for the best deals and learn where you can cut corners without cutting on quality of your vacation. Don’t be left out of pocket and learning the hard way why you’re supposed to balance your vacation budget before you go. We’ve got three amazing ways that you can cut your vacation costs, without losing the quality of the destination that you choose!

Transport. A road trip can provide an amazing way to see many different places at a very low cost. You could choose to get yourself a Jeep and head out toward the sunset, or you could check out used motorcycles available for you to buy instead. Two wheels, the open road and only what you need with you can provide you a freedom that may not have been otherwise possible. You can also cut down on your vacation transport by booking flights very far in advance – flight timetables and tickets are released 330 days in advance.

Shopping. Vacation shopping is one of the best bits – it means that the vacation you’ve booked is finally around the corner. If you buy all your necessities early and before you go out to your destination, you can save huge amounts of cash. Holiday resorts are often ready to charge you far more for sunscreen!


Accommodation. The birth of Airbnb has been a revelation to holiday makers, as the rental of an entire home or condo is so much cheaper and a far better experience than being stuffed together in a hotel room with the housekeeping coming in and out to clean. You can save money by doing a shop locally and self-catering. The hotel experience is nice, sure, but it’s not going to beat the extra cash in your wallet.


Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and not stressful. If you ensure that you can stretch your budget properly when you book one, you will have a far nicer time away from home. Don’t just book the first vacation offer that you find, when there are hundreds of thousands of choices out there ready for you to look at. Take your time, save your pennies and go on the vacation of a lifetime!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
