Every year we head to York Beach in Maine in hopes to find a place to stay close to the ocean. Each year we find that if you don’t book ahead of time then trying to find a motel or hotel to stay in close to the ocean water is quite an impossible feat.
This year our family has been saving to try to make sure we can plan ahead and stay at least one night in a motel near York Beach, ME. I know that my children would really like to go to the York Zoo as well and hopefully we can afford that extra expense on our mini family vacation.
One of the biggest reasons why we will be able to spend 1-2 nights in York, ME is because we take the time to bring our own food and supplies to ensure we don’t have to order room service or dine out the whole time we are on our mini-vacation.
Another great way to save money during a vacation would be to search online for coupons, deals and savings in the area you will be staying. A lot of companies have online savings that you can print to bring along with you and save some extra cash as well.
I can’t wait for a mini-vacation near the ocean, how wonderfully relaxing that will be and if we start searching now for deals in that area then maybe we will find a great way to experience the full joy of York, ME.
#TMOM Twitter Party Details – You’re Invited!
I am going to be a panelist at the #TMOM Twitter party and wanted to take a moment to invite you all to come along and tweet with us. Prizes and great conversations all about Savings.com, how do you save for vacation?
All the Details
This party is sponsored by Savings.com which is a website that aggregates deals from other deal providers (groupon & living social and others) PLUS provides their own exclusive deals. You can enter your zip code to find deals in your area or the area you are traveling to. Their perspective is that they could save a family money all year round so that they would have more to spend on vacation.

- $250 American Express gift card

- and a $25 gas card.
Attend the #TMOM Party on Monday, June 20,2011 from 9pm – 10pm EST. Be sure to RSVP by visiting TravelingMom.com so that we know who is attending!
As a panelist I will receive compensation for participating and sharing this party with you. I chose to be a part of the panelist for the #TMOM party because as a mom of three children saving money all year round is important to me!
