• Prepare a list of activities you would like to do and rate them based on priority. Give precedence to activities that cost the least.
  • If you did an activity in the morning, continue having fun at home or in the park with friends and family instead of spending money in the afternoon as well.
  • Check to see if there are special prices for activities of interest.
  • Download coupons online, buy tickets in advance to get the early bird cost, and check if group rates apply. Group rates can be significantly cheaper than regular prices.
  • Plan a trip together with other children to save gas and time for parents.
  • When offering friends to join an activity or trip, consider that others may have a limit to how much they can spend.
  • Sometimes having a relaxing day even while on vacation is just as important as doing an activity. Try taking it easy one day instead of planning activities for every day of Chol HaMoed.
  • There are times when you may have to do less than originally planned and hoped for if you realize the costs are becoming too high.
  • Turn off the lights, computers, AC and other electronics when possible to ensure that you’re saving on household costs while you’re away.
  • Take drinks and snacks with you wherever you go so that you don’t have to worry about buying refreshments too.
