Countdown to Europe: 6 months

by Karen on November 5, 2009

We’ve been planning for our trip to Europe for months now, but we’re down to about 6 and a half months until the trip. Since we’ll be moving about 3 weeks before we take off, I’m getting organized now to ensure everything goes smoothly. Here’s what we’re doing in the next month to prepare: Make […]

Overseas transaction fees give me a headache

by Karen on September 8, 2009

We’re not going to start booking until January at the earliest, but right now we’re doing a lot of research for our trip to Europe in May. That means we’re tracking airfare, putting together a loose itinerary, and researching the logistical aspects of traveling to another country. One of the biggest headaches of traveling to […]

Photo by stevenvanwel A few weeks ago, Tony and I started doing the math to see if it would be possible to stay in Europe for two months. We decided to think about it, see if we could save the money, and go from there. After looking at all of our options, we’ve decided to […]

A little symbol to remind us of our goals

by Karen on June 30, 2009

Photo by benklemm Just last week I wrote about the importance of dreaming big. Sometimes the day-to-day reality of living frugally can be tough. Having big goals to remind you why you decided to scrimp and save can make it easier. By keeping my eye on the prize, I’m reminded of why the daily sacrifices […]

For the past few days, Tony and I have been going over an idea that might be completely insane. I’ve written a lot about our plan for a two-week vacation in Europe next May. Both of us always wished we’d taken the opportunity to study abroad in college, and this vacation seemed like the next […]

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Just generally kind of blah. It’s taken me some time to figure out what could be causing it, especially since everything is going so well for us right now. I’ve always had a tendency to be preoccupied with the future. Instead of enjoying what I have […]

An update on goals & a progress report

by Karen on April 1, 2009

I can’t believe it’s only been about 8 months since we committed to frugality and began saving our emergency fund. Our progress has been slow, but it’s started to pick up since we paid off our credit card debt. Beginning in January, we doubled our monthly savings amount. Hopefully that means the progress meter I […]

When we started planning our Europe trip, we wanted to visit London; Paris; and Florence, Italy. After I started crunching numbers and planning a tentative itinerary, we decided that the added cost and extra travel time made Italy an impossibility. Since then several people have urged me to reconsider our decision to nix Italy. Two […]

Money in Europe: What’s the best option?

by Karen on February 24, 2009

photo by poolie As I continue to research for our frugal European vacation in 2010, I’ve come across a new dilemma: what should we do about money overseas? We’ve decided to carry only a limited amount of cash. Not only are currency conversion fees really high at banks and other institutions (at ATMs we could […]
