IDEA #11 Check Craigs List and Hotwire

I am on a role! Okay now my sister probably knows it is because I am most likely avoiding cleaning some area of my house.

I am a total procrastinator! Years back I tried to change that and even succeed for sometime but it really was way too much work! Plus I am just fine sitting amongst chaos. I believe this trait alone is one of the reasons I have always been able to work from home!

Here is my kitchen at this moment.  Last nights dishes still in the sink because I forgot to run the dishwasher during the day, veggies that still need cleaned from two days ago, left over stuff from making Jack's lunch and my breakfast dishes...made a great new recipe called Banana Walnut Oatmeal.  *check out my blog for the recipe.  Did I mention my husband travels and when he is gone this is a common  look for my kitchen. BUT Today is my day to clean so soon it will sparkle!

Okay back to the point of this blog (wow I do tend to ramble, sorry about that)

Last night I finished booking a trip to Vegas. Our daughter, Allie has a Volleyball Tournament there over winter break. So we decided it would be fun to go there as a family. So I started looking for hotel rooms with kitchens/condos. I looked on all the sites and couldn’t find any in the price range we needed. But then I got a great tip from my Aunt Kimmie (okay I say Aunt but she is only five years older than me and she has gone to Vegas a fair bit!)

IDEA #11: CHECK CRAIGS LIST and HOTWIRE for travel discounts!
I was shocked to discover that this was a great place to look!!! We ended up getting a 2 bedroom deluxe condo with a full kitchen at a time share resort one block behind the MGM Grand for $162.00 a night!!! Regularly $359 Plus it isn’t a casino and has four hot tubs and a great pool!  If we had just been looking for a regular hotel we could of gotten something right on the strip for $80 easily.

So if you are looking to travel this next year don’t forget to look on Craigs list to see if there is anything available for that area!

RENTING A CAR?  Try Hotwire. I was able to get 19.00 a day for a medium sized car. I checked all the other sites and they were the best deal!

I don’t know how people did it back in the day before internet but it is so helpful to be able to compare sites and truly look for the best deal!
