What prompted me to tell you how to "ball on a budget" was today, I realized that I only owe $169 more dollars on my 6 Day Western Caribbean Cruise in May 2012. As I do every payday, I put $50 towards my upcoming cruise--well almost every payday. That is when I realized that I have been paying on this cruise since last year and now I am down to $169!
Just like many of the big retailers in the world has layaway plans for things you wish to buy, so does the travel industry. Paying on your vacation like a layaway allows you to travel where you want and pay over time. For example, if you wanted to take a cruise, a year from now, a small deposit can hold your cruise, today, and the balance can be paid in monthly installments throughout the year, with your balance due by a specified date, provided by the cruise line. The same system will apply for all-inclusive resorts and many other vacations packages.
And that, my friends, is how I ball out of control, around the world, on a budget!
