Summer is upon us, the kids are out of school, it’s vacation time. People all over the country are either planning or getting ready for a vacation. Whether you’re going out of the country or just to another state, vacations can be expensive. There’s also all the problems of making sure your home is safe and taken care of while you’re gone, then there’s pets, who will take care of them?
Vacations are great and it’s good to get away and relax someplace where you can forget all your troubles. Everyone should enjoy a nice vacation occasionally but there are less expensive options these days.
In the last few years, more people have been choosing to stay home and enjoy their time off without going anywhere. It’s called a staycation, and it’s all about treating yourself to a fun and relaxing time at home.
Instead of spending thousands on a European or island vacation, why not bring the resort to you? People are choosing to spend money on their backyards instead of vacations. Some put in swimming pools or relaxing patio furniture with a new barbecue.
With the money you save, you can have a relaxing time in your own back yard. Have nice backyard pool parties and invite all your friends. You can even have your parties catered so that you don’t have to do anything but be there, just as if you were at a resort.
Do all the relaxing and entertaining you want, without having to worry about traveling and all the problems and stress that can come with that. Even your pets will enjoy having you around, and you don’t have to worry about your house.
So, if you haven’t decided on where to go for a vacation yet, consider staying at home and making it a staycation instead.
