Traveling Abroad for Less than the Cost of Summer Camp

Traveling Abroad for Less than the Cost of Summer Camp

Last summer I did something I have never done before, I took the summer off with my kids. A back packer in my previous life (e.g. pre-kids and pre-career) I traveled solo through SE Asia. While, my days of hostels and packed buses are long behind me, this summer taught me an amazing lesson. Traveling solo with kids is not only possible for parents but the rewards are many! The best part—if you travel to places where the cost of living is low and you play the airline card game, you can do so for less than the cost of many kid’s summer camps.

Finally! We can get rewarded to budget!

Budgeting…yes I know, some people might think it’s boring. But I think budgeting is exciting, because it puts you in charge of exactly where you want your money to go.

Speaking of being in control of your money, when was the last time you got rewarded for your planned spending? I am not talking about some of those credit cards that give you 1% cash back and then charge you 25% in interest and hundreds in fees. I’m talking about a time when you were in control of your finances, planned ahead, stuck to your budget and got a financial reward for it.

How to Avoid Holiday Overspending

How to Avoid Holiday Overspending

Have you ever joked with friends or family following a get-together that you’d been “overserved”? It’s a tongue in cheek expression, acknowledging that you exceeded your prudent limit of food or drink (and are now paying the price), but blaming someone else. You’re not fooling anyone, of course, but it spares your pride to jokingly fault the host instead of yourself.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
