THIS WEEK'S TIP: I am being a defiant Manitoban and refusing to turn on the furnace for the first time this fall. I'll shiver in bed before I accept that winter is on its way. Over the past few weeks I have shown you on the Free Press website how to plan your winter getaway cheaply and creatively. From airfare discounts to getting deals at hotels, we've covered the logistics of a trip. But depending on the kind of vacation you want to have, did you plan correctly? Have you overbooked yourself resulting in losing money because you can't do all the activities you've crammed in? You might not know until you get there. In this week's video, I tell you how to map out your vacation so you have a good time and not go broke by building an impossible (and needlessly expensive) itinerary.
