A Wonderful Vacation

Sunday morning my Husband and I leave for the first true vacation, by ourselves, in almost 5 years!  This is a frugal girls dream as it is an all expenses paid getaway (out of the country)  that is costing us nothing!  Southern Savers will continue as normal, no worries, you just might find that deals added in comments do not get moved to the main deal list this week — so make sure to read the comments before shopping.

I have lots of guest posts, savings tips and articles set for you so you should have a wonderful week.  And again, all of your grocery lists will still be up at the regularly scheduled time.  No need to cause Southern grocery shopping panic.

      you have inspired me so much these past few months that i’ve been following this website. my husband and i have been married 13 years and have three children under 9. we’ve never gone on vacation by ourselves since our honeymoon. i see a light at the end of our tunnel. i can’t wait to learn and plan a frugal vacation for us. i think we deserve it.

      enjoy your time together!

      Wow!!! I hope you have an awesome time. I would love to know how you got such a great deal…we have yet to have a vacation without the kids and we are going on seven years now. I can’t even remember what it is like to travel childless. Enjoy. -Rachel
