Small amount added to savings; vacation plans

April 23rd, 2009 at 08:10 am

My regular biweekly savings deposit came through today, with $25 going toward the vacation fund. That means I've saved $700 this month for the vacation. It's going to be a relatively cheap vacation for us; I'm going to accumulate just $3000, and I think it will feel like much more than we need.

With our cottages coming in under $800 and the car (with gas and insurance) probably less than $500, that leaves quite a bit of mad money.

We'll definitely get some spa services (they're available both in Madison and in Door County). We may drive over to Wisconsin Dells, a waterpark heaven, rent boats and/or bikes when in Door County, take the ferry to Washington Island, buy some recreation equipment (we were thinking a bocce ball set). We'll probably eat out a couple times, but for the most part we'll be cooking our own meals. It's going to feel nice after our fun-but-excessive $5000 trip to Vegas!
