I know vacation season is done, for the most part. However, I wanted to share something I do when we go away.
I use a spiral notebook like this, the kind with paper and dividers with pockets inside. I print off all of my reservations, hotel information, directions or anything else like that and place it in one of the pockets. Often if you go online, you can also find coupons for money off admission to different attractions, so I also print off those kinds of things and put them in another pocket along with attraction fliers or things that may have been mailed to me.
When we go on our trip, I keep a running tally of the cost of things. I find it helps to keep the vacation budget in line and it's nice to know how much you spent on gas or food when the trip is done.
I also put receipts from hotels in it, just in case I need that information later
I like to scrapbook these trips, so if I see something I want to remember for that, I write it down in the book.
A vacation notebook works for me! For more ideas, visit Kristen at We are THAT family.
