Most of you are probably headed for New Year’s vacation or are headed back to prepare for school. Either way, every parent will want to save something for January. While some expenses are unavoidable, the smaller expenses can be dropped completely.
- Buy snacks in advance
Snacks at are way too expensive along the way. Pack healthier, satiating goodies for the whole family. You will be surprised at how much you will save.
- Bring your own entertainment
Recently, certain airlines are charging something extra for TV and internet access with an option to default if you do not want to incur the extra charge. Allow your kids to use your mobile devices for entertainment when traveling.
- Pack light
Having kids doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to pack more than you need. Extra luggage will cost you more.
- Be proactive
Look for ways to save a penny whenever possible. For example, use cash to avoid the extra charge when using certain credit cards, redeem gifts you are likely to assume and use free Wi-Fi.
