How do you "save for the rainy day", setting aside a portion of what you earn, not just for emergency purposes but for leisure as well. Dividing a portion of what the family's monthly income that goes out for major expenses such as education, home, and kids, I always believe that saving something for the experience to enjoy life, like a family vacation, a good dining experience, or even an added extra fun with friends. Consider this as a reward and always a good time to bond with the members of the family.

We have this notion when we plan to travel for it is expensive and sometimes can drain your budget and savings. The keys to this amazing trip and adventure with the family that you can enjoy and will won't go bankrupt your savings are planning ahead of time plus buying a vacation deals online that are on sale!

As I recall, my personal experience of shopping online was only limited to shopping for clothes. I am amazed by how everything evolves with online shopping, now I can find almost anything! And, again my purpose is to purchase it at a discounted price compared to the actual physical store. Can you imagine the time you can save and the gasoline if you drive or commute just to shop?

Did you know that there are a lot of online shopping deal sites both local and international? This means that you can shop whenever and wherever you are in the world! You can shop for yourself or give it as a gift.

Things you need to look for in an online shopping site:
  1. Check if the site is legit (do research and read reviews).
  2. They offer discounts, sale, and promos.
  3. The wide array of choices a consumer can choose from.
  4. Easy and flexible payment methods.
  5. Ask friends for referrals.

I can enumerate the shopping sites I experienced doing transactions with but there is this one shopping site I have in my email subscription for years, it’s Deal Grocer. I wanted to give this a try, will gear up for a birthday/holiday staycation, soon!
