You might think that going frugal means no more holidays. But this is more a ‘cheap’ approach and isn’t likely to do you any favours. Travelling and holidays are a necessary part of living a healthy life. Without them, we’re likely to burn out from work or feel claustrophobic from never leaving the same surroundings. This can lead to binge spending on nights out, ruining our frugal budget. For instance, instead of trying to hit several countries in Europe or all the states you can manage in one road trip, start small. Pick a region and explore it thoroughly, instead of hopping and skipping round the place. Opt for road trips instead of flying if you can afford the fuel, and pick areas with free or cheap activities: hiking, swimming, camping, etc.Think about what you really need from your holiday as well. Is a trip into the city, running around between shows and dinners and clubs really what you’re looking for? Or is it peace and quiet? You want to take the right kind of holiday so when you get back to the grind, you won’t immediately feel the need for another one. Plan ahead, making sure you’re always budgeting for your holiday throughout the year. If you have money put aside specifically for your holiday, you can plan a holiday based on what your budget allows. Don’t skip on taking remote working holidays or ‘workations’. While working in a new city or remote spot is no substitute for time off, it could clear your head and give you some of the space you need to push on a little longer. That way, you can save for the holiday you really need.
