Regardless of how you do it, unless you are high income earners or filthy rich; you are most likely going to have to make sacrifices to afford family holidays.  Don’t worry, it’s totally worth it!

Consider getting the kids involved in the saving and planning process.  I show my kids awesome photos and videos (Instagram and YouTube) in the lead up so when they ask me for something at the shop, I can remind them why we won’t be getting it.

Modelling to your children the value of hard work and saving money is one of the most valuable behaviors you can show them.

I truly believe that you will be creating memories that will be better and longer lasting than any possession.
