FINANCIAL FRIDAY





Happy Friday! I pray you are having a beautiful week! I wanted to share a few ideas on how to have a stress free vacation. If you follow on instagram then you already know I recently went to Las Vegas. I was able to enjoy it and return home stress free because everything was planned in advance. Therefore, I would like to share how I prepared for the vacation.

Take care of home first: I never leave for any vacation without making sure all my household expenses are all taken care of. The fact that I pay bills one particular day of each month and the process is automatic reduces a lot of financial stress. Therefore I can enjoy my month without financial worry and in this case enjoy my vacation.


Prepay for vacation expenses: The flight and hotel are sometimes the most expensive items so paying for the entire amount as early as possible is a plus. If you charge it please pay off the balance immediately. Your vacation should not cost you interest!! 

Another expense I prepaid for was my Vegas shows. Every night I had a show planned and I didn't want the worry of long lines to purchase tickets. 











Meals and Shopping: This is the area you can only estimate based on what the average cost in the area is. I knew a lot of my eating would be in the resort because there were tons of food options and it was convenient. Therefore, I planned $100-$150 per day for meals. I'm also glad I explored some authentic Vegas restaurants outside the resort as well.  

There were plenty of shopping options. I found knowing what I wanted in advance made the shopping less stressful and saved time. 








 Thank you for reading and I pray you have a blessed weekend!
