IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO SAVE MONEY OR CREATE FAMILY MEMORIES?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

My family and I are a little short financially these days. Not dangerously so, but things are a bit tight. My husband wants us to skip our annual summer vacation this year because of our finances but I think it’s important to maintain our yearly ritual of a family trip for our kids’ memories. What do you think?

–Wanting to Create Memories (United States)

DEAR WANTING:

You and your husband both have valid concerns. Is there any way you both can compromise and either take a shorter or less expensive this year so you can create memories for the family as well as having room to breathe financially? Or maybe you can create your own crazy-fun family ritual at home or camping nearby.

There are many free or low-cost ways to have fun and create family memories. You can also look into one of those sites where you can trade homes with other families online, so you can save on housing costs.

Have fun creating your own unique vacation that works for all of your needs.
