Planning A Trip

Hey Loves! F & J here!
If you have read any of our previous blogs you may know we are travelling to Florida this October. We are super excited to be going and thought we would share our enthusiasm with you. We have officially locked down a date and bought the plane tickets. We kept our eyes on plane tickets for a long time, checking multiple airlines almost daily for a few months. It is a bit of a hassle but we ended up saving some money!Which is always a good thing.

It is a huge trip and it requires A LOT of budgeting. We have created spreadsheets, which allowed us to figure out costs, and how much we will need to save. Considering we are going to be going to a few theme parks the costs really added up, and having a spreadsheet allowed us to break it down so it did not seem so overwhelming. 

We have been finding ways to save to make the overall trip not seem so hard on our wallets. We have talked about our coin jar a few times, and we will be putting that money towards this! We also took up a little dog walking gig, and have agreed to put all that money towards this trip. That has been a huge help even though its such a small thing, it really has added up.

We still have a lot of figuring out to do. We have created a general itinerary (not too specific, we are on vacation!), but we still need to write the ultimate packing list, figuring out if there are any "must see" things in Florida, and please feel free to tell us if you know of any! We have wasted days on Pinterest looking but seem to have come up a bit shorter than we would have hoped. We are still super excited, and we have some more time to plan.

Until next time...
