It's the time of the year when alot of families go on vacation. How many families are going to take a trip this year they cannot afford? It's one thing to save up for your expecting trip, but if you have to borrow money or use credit cards I think it is obvious that maybe the vacation needs to be taken at a different time or maybe a cheaper trip. I think it's great to take time to spend with your family if you can afford it. Why would you put yourself in a more difficult financial situation? Is the trip really worth it? It can cause more trouble than it's actually worth. You have to pay all of the money back that you did not have in the beginning.
Weigh your options. Can you go at a later date to get a cheaper rate? Are you trying to impress someone who most likely could care less? You will go and most likely enjoy yourself.Guess what? When you return home, you are still going to be in the same financial situation you were in before you left.
What's more important? Your families financial status or your trip?
