Staycation | The Frugalista


by frugalista on July 3, 2008

Staycation Yep, the holiday weekend is among us. This time last year, I was hanging out at the Essence Music Festival. I had an awesome time. I saw Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and Frankie Beverly perform. Roaming on the streets of New Orleans was big fun. I won’t tell you more about my trip because what happens in New Orleans, stays in New Orleans!

Alas, that was the pre-frugal me. This Fourth of July, I’m going to my friend’s condo to watch the fireworks from his high-rise balcony. All good. I’m doing what everyone calls a staycation . There are varying kinds. For some, a staycation means entertaining at home, for others it means being a tourist in your home city.  Here’s some audio about staycations.

By staying at home this weekend, I’ll probably save about $700. Yay.

What are your Fourth of July plans? How are you managing your budget this holiday weekend?
