“All-inclusive” facilities are NOT necessarily the best deals. The so-called “savings” may very well be a few bucks DSC_0059as opposed to buying your own meals when tallied at the end of your vacation. In fact, it may even cost you more for that all-inclusive deal. These days at “all-inclusive” hotels, alcohol may or may not be included. If it is, it’s not top shelf and for some reason, all of those alcohol based drinks taste weaker or watered-down. Sometimes, there may be an additional charge for alcoholic beverages or top-shelf beverages. I’ve even seen “additional charges” for better grades of beef and even seafood like shrimp. You’re there thinking, “This is all-inclusive?”

Stop buying souvenirs for Joe, Moe, and dear Aunt Flo! DSC_0022 Nobody wears those awful 4 for $10 T-shirts anyway, so save your money and come back with a great story of your travels instead. Souvenir plates, shot glasses, key-chains, little glass vials with corks on top filled with sand and shells – please, please, please no! Do not waste your time, money, and valuable baggage space to carry these items back from your vacations.

Facial scrubs can be made with fresh-squeezed orange juice mixed with a few packets of sugar for a great citrus scrub, makes a good astringent too. Coffee grounds (usually complimentary in the room) taste terrible, but when moistened, make a terrific exfoliate. There are spas Web3that add warm milk to this and charge about $100 for a “latte scrub.” Make your own spa treatments, right in the room and save, save, save!
