Summer road trips remind us that it may be time for a vehicle tune up. Just like regular maintenance prevents damage to your vehicle and helps ensure a smoother and safer ride, regular financial tune ups can help keep you on the road to financial security and stability.

“You guys are always going somewhere,” a friend of mine exclaimed recently. It’s true, my husband and I like to travel, and we usually try to make the most of our duty stations by seeing the local sights. We are fortunate in our current assignment because there are plenty of things to do within a few hours’ drive. The challenge is to make our weekend jaunts affordable, and I think we’ve done a pretty good job of that.
I’m a planner by nature and I have found that my attention to detail has come in handy when figuring out how to have fun on a budget. Recently, we spent an enjoyable and thrifty weekend on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. We already have plans to go back, and I have figured out how to make it even less expensive next time. I’ll share some of my travel secrets with you if you promise not to mob our favorite vacation spots!
