How to Budget Your Vacation
Hi! I am going to talk to you now about vacation budgeting basics.
It's important to set up a budget before you go on your trips so that you are able to know what you should save on and what you can splurge on.
When you are shopping for your trip for all your toiletries, it's important to buy travel size. It's important to carry travel-sized items, because of the changing regulations and airport security. I personally never like to check my bag, so therefore I really do need to keep travel-sized toiletries.
What I recommend doing is buying the containers and reusing them, keeping your old shampoos, conditioners, and other products and putting them in those plastic containers and reusing them for every trip you go on there.
I personally don't like to check my bag so I carry a carry-on. Therefore, I have to use travel-sized containers. What I do is I go to my local pharmacy and buy travel-sized plastic containers that I can put the shampoo, the conditioner, the body washes, and whatever products I use in that I already own in those containers.
That way I am greener, more eco-friendly and I am just reusing those plastic containers that meet the airline regulations. That way I can keep my bag on me at all times and not worry about it being lost or stolen and having to deal with the chaos that ensues when you lose your luggage at your destination.
