My family and I take several "vacations" through out the year. Every one comments how we must be made of money since we travel so much. That is actually not the case. We are your average middle classed family, I just stretch every single penny. When traveling, you have to prioritize.
Things like that are very important. When people say vacation, usually an extravagant 10 day get away is what comes to mind. My family does not vacation like that, so we can afford it more often. Every year for my wedding anniversary we go somewhere. Usually Sedona AZ but it has varied year to year. This year for my birthday we are planning a trip to Flagstaff AZ. Last year we took 3 vacations, and this is how I do it!
