How I Plan My Holiday Staycations on a Budget

Whenever I want to unwind, a staycation is always a good idea. However, for a lot of people, it may seem luxurious, but you really need not spend so much on a well-deserved restful break. 

Especially after the pandemic, we have had enough of the four walls of our home. The beach is a perfect getaway for the dreamy staycation-er.  There are a lot of affordable yet promising resorts countrywide, just perfect to amaze us in the best way possible. Here is how I usually plan and manage my staycations on a budget.

1. Jotting My Staycation Goals

Each staycation has a different goal. I make sure I list all of the things I need and want for the my stay at a resort. This way, I will be able to look for the perfect venue to cast the tiredness away. Usually, I make sure that I have a fund for staycations as these are must-haves for a healthy mind and soul. I use to plan my finances so easily. In just a few clicks, I will know how much savings I still have left after calculating all necessary expenditures, including the fund for the staycation.

2. Researching Resort and Taking into Consideration my Goals

There are so many resorts. However, I always have my goal in mind when I hunt for staycation resorts. The first thing is always a cozy room with a view. Otherwise, it will be a deal breaker. I also usually look for resorts with wifi just in case I need to check on things.

3. Weekday Wonders

If you think resorts are usually pricey. Then you are right - on weekends. Try their weekday rates and you will be amazed! Also, do not, for goodness sake, book resorts on a peak season. The prices tend to skyrocket.

4. Look Beyond the Obvious Resorts

While the big-name resorts might be tempting, don't underestimate the charm of smaller, boutique options. They often offer a more intimate experience at a fraction of the cost. Yep, I say this a million times. There are great resorts that are not really famous. Look for them!

5. BYOF: Bring Your Own Feast

One of the perks of staycations is the flexibility to bring your own goodies. Pack a picnic or grab some local treats to savor in your resort oasis. It's a great way to indulge without the hefty restaurant bills. I usually bring everything I need, including my food. Because most resorts have pork in their menu. So, I do not really gamble with their restaurant food.

This post makes me wanna go on a staycation again. See yah somewhere with a cool breeze! And remember, don't ruin the budget!
