No Money to Travel

Travel With Children Jul 28, 2009 No Comments

There is no money to travel in our budget! How I miss the travel benefits of an airline job. I don’t regret choosing my children over my career but, wow, air travel is expensive! What’s the deal with the fees and taxes? A $150 fare can easily become a $400 fare with F&T.
Can I cut our budget enough to fly away? The tough thing is we’ve already trimmed our budget drastically for me to be able to stay home and homeschool. Can we cut back more? Ben is bicycling to work and our second car runs on vegetable oil? What else is there? Food? Should we all eat less, so that we can travel more?

“A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?” Ecclesiastes 2:24-25

Hmm, maybe not.

I’ve been reading This guy has some pretty good ideas.

I’m going to try some, and I’ll keep you posted.
