"The REAL Cost of Family Vacations" - Great Article on the Working Mother Website!
As a working mom (Jennifer) I have such a difficult time navigating vacations with my husband's schedule and the daycare schedule. This article "The Real Cost of Family Vacations" from Working Mother was great for this mom (who is attempting to plan Christmas vacations)!
This article focuses on: a) all-inclusive resorts, b) driving and staying in a big city, and c) renting home in a vacation locale.
EVERYTHING is covered: "what is budget friendly" to the "hidden/forgotten costs".
