Whatever Happens at Home…Stays at Home

Simple Ways to Have a Staycation on a Budget

It’s Summer!  You have finally earned a nice week or more of vacation and your boss gave you the O.K. to take vacation!

You check your mobile banking app, oh no!  You have only 100 dollars or less and a whole week to yourself!

You’ve cleaned your apartment, mopped your home, and washed your dishes, now what?

There is hope!  Here are a few ways you can still have a great vacation, even if it’s just at home.

Extra ‘Moola

There are plenty of ways to make extra money, two of my personally favorite apps for this are, Mercari and PoshMark.


This is my go to app for shopping  electronics, jewelry, and home goods.  You can message the buyer, sell, and add hashtags to your item to drive sales.  What’s unique about this app is that you also have a button called “promote”.  This button will promote your items on the front page of the app, if you are willing to let them lower the price by a few dollars.


When I am trying to sell, or even buy a trendy high end fashion piece, or hand bag, I go to “PoshMark”.

What’s nice about PoshMark is the shipping label is already included with your item, so that you don’t have to worry about extra spending on shipping.

While you can find electronics, and home goods on this app, it’s primary gear it towards fashion and beauty labels such as Younique, Coach, Chanel, and other high end designers.

What is neat and different with “PoshMark” is that they offer what is called a “party” these parties are for specific brands or categories such as, handbags.  These usually have a large group of at least 10 k or more people, exposing your products to many!

These two apps can provide a cash out of at least $50 or more when both apps are combined for sales.  Plus with pay pal and direct deposit, once you ship your items to you can earn your money in no time!

Lu Out anyone?

Save yourself some money and provide your own manicure or pedicure, you can even put on a playlist, maybe some nice ocean music and set your bathroom up with candles and more.

You can also find face masks at your local department stores like Walmart, for relatively cheap, my go to brand for this is Freeman Beauty.

Nature does the soul good, and it also can be a free and easy way to have a vacation, check out beaches, ponds, or trails near you.  Pack a basket and have yourself a merry little picnic!

Namastay in Bed

If you’re like me, I’m up a majority of the days at 5 AM.  When you are on vacation take this week to sleep in, your body and mind, will really thank you for the extra z’s!
