Use this time to do some spring cleaning that you have been trying to get around to doing. Plan to have a garage sale to bring in some extra cash for your budget while the weather is nice. Not too hot and not too cold!

How can spring cleaning benefit the family?
It helps us to get things cleaned out and organized. Being organized is refreshing and will help motivate us to sit down and do a budget on paper, on purpose before the month begins. Remember a budget is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went.

What is the best plan for traveling during spring break?
Write down your plans on paper. Think about how many times you plan to eat out.
Figure out how many miles it is and how many tanks of gas you will need to get there and BACK!

How much do you plan to spend on souvenirs?
All of this cost money and it is best to know what that cost is before you leave to go somewhere on spring break!
This will help your spring break be relaxing, organized and successful!
