Budget now for spring break trips
With spring break around the corner, affordable vacation plans are on many people’s minds.
Bobbie Shaffett, family resource management specialist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said early planning is the key to budgeting for a vacation. She suggested that would-be vacationers calculate the expected cost of transportation, lodging, meals and entertainment, then compare that figure to the amount the budget will actually allow.
Ideally, travelers will have enough lead time to calculate the amount needed for the trip, divide the anticipated total cost by the number of pay periods before the vacation and determine how much to save from each paycheck.
