Our Vacation Fund

Family Vacation TraditionThe "Vacation Fund" is a tradition that started soon after we got married. We didn't have a lot of money, but we wanted to be able to make an annual vacation part of our marriage. I suggested that we start to save our loose change and also to supplement with an extra dollar (or ten) when we had some money to spare. We bought a piggy bank to put the money in and we made a routine of bringing it to the bank once a month so we wouldn't be tempted to use the money for other things. The first year (12 years ago) we saved $197, enough to pay for gas and two nights hotel in Chicago. In the years to follow we've continued the vacation fund and even saved enough to take the kids to Disney World last year.
