Working in an office can be dreary, repetitive and boring. This is the reason for annual vacations. You have to get out of the office and recharge. During this time, you need a change in scenery, some fresh air, and enough rest and relaxation.
Usually, people plan for their yearly vacation as soon as the year starts. Others already know where they are going as soon as their yearly vacation is over. Of course, there are those who think in the long-term. They have planned vacations years in advance, allowing them to save money for these dream vacations.
You ask yourself “Where do I want to go?” From there you try to get an idea of how much you are going to spend, how expensive things can be, and how much you are willing to spend. After all of that, you then decide whether you want to enjoy yourself some more, and that adds more costs. After all of that, only then do you start budgeting for the vacation. When everything is ironed out only then do you start looking at your finances.
This is the part where you do a balancing act. Do you want to wait that long to save money? Can you spend your vacation with less money? These are details you should address even before you start saving for your dream vacation. Of course, once you start saving you should continue doing so until you meet your target amount or your deadline arrives.
