Keep vacation spending in check with these tips
Planning a winter trip or spring break getaway? Even if you've booked a place and paid for travel, there's more to do if you want to avoid overspending. Start planning now for spring break expenses, Andy Mattingly of Forum Credit Union suggests, particularly spending traps like meals, activities and souvenirs. Maybe you plan for one expensive meal per day, then snacks or less expensive options the rest of the time. Tell the kids they can choose one souvenir from the trip, rather than one from each place.
