After the hustle and bustle of the holidays seeing family or traveling, you almost need a vacation from your vacation. Unfortunately, no matter how often we want to take time off, our budgets usually don’t allow for a trip away every time you need one. Thankfully, there’s still a way to capture the experience of getting away from it all to spend quality time with your family. Next time you feel the need to take a major break, or just want to bond with the kiddos, try taking a staycation. You don’t have to spend money on hotels or travel, just plan a few in-town activities you’ve always wanted to try, eat breakfast in bed, and you’re bound to feel rejuvenated once you get back!
To make planning your staycation even easier, Mint created these printables. There’s a planning template to get the most out of your itinerary, and a budgeting sheet to make sure you don’t go too crazy with the splurges. Recreate the luxury of having breakfast in bed with their interactive menu. Just because you aren’t traveling to a new place with unique local food, doesn’t mean you have to eat what you normally eat. Once the whole family has made wonderful memories from the staycation, consider recording them in a scrapbook with some printable stickers.
No matter where you go, one of the best parts of any vacation is who you spend it with. With a relaxing stay in, you and your family get to unwind, while getting to focus on what really matters: spending time together.
