    good stuff Derek. Vacation envelope is ready to see daylight tomorrow!
    Better to stay in a condo than a hotel, eat in for breakfast and lunch….enjoy dinner out!

    I tried a new system for my vacation this winter, I used PayPal to create a digital vacation envelope. It worked out really well and now we're using it for other things (home improvement). Here's what I did: http://bedrockcoaching.us/my-paypal-digital-env

    Thanks for the comment, Deacon! I'm new to PayPal and will have to tinker with that digital envelope idea.

    Sounds like you put some real thought into what's going on for future purchases (vacations, home improvement) – thanks for the insight!

    Very cool, Gregg! I'm a big fan of using cash, especially on vacation. Cash has a way of reminding us not to spend more than we planned. It's easy to get sucked into emotional spending on a vacation (with fun being that emotional motivator); cash helps us have fund and prevents headaches on the drive/flight home.

    Thanks for your comment!
