#Travel140: Keep Spring Break Affordable

#Travel140 Travel Tips

Keeping Spring Break affordable starts with packing your family’s essentials.

You never buy things at the airport because they cost at least twice as much, right? Use that same logic when you’re going to a resort for Spring Break. Yes, they will have sunblock and toothpaste. And yes, you will pay more for it.

Save yourself some time, money, and stress by making a packing list of Spring Break Essentials your family will need. Start with the Must Have items appropriate for your destination. If mountains are in your future, pack bug spray and anti-itch creme. Pack your sunblock and sunburn care for the beach. The fun stuff will be more expensive at a resort, too, but it takes up a lot of room in your luggage. If you have the space, consider bringing snorkel masks and fins, sand toys, and beach blankets. Just be ready to leave them behind to save on baggage fees.
