How are you spending your savings?

My brother and his fellow LA hooligans/bums are currently en route to south shore Lake Tahoe for snowboarding and TikiMan-knows-what-else. That’s right for some students  spring break has arrived. If spring break hasn’t arrived for you, you’re probably already thinking about it (except for you poor souls who get no Spring Break… we’re all sorry for you).

For those who are getting ready to head off for some R&R here are some great sites to help you plan a great breaks without going broke.

  1. Student Universe – this website gets great discounts on flights for students and professors only.
  2. DRIVE. Driving is a pain, but there are so many great places to go if you can’t afford a flight. Need some suggestions? Try Google Maps. If you don’t find a place that looks nice on satellite, hey, at least you spent some quality time on Google Maps.
  3. CouchSurfing.org – if you’ve never used this site, I highly recommended it. People host you for free!
  4. Imagination Spring Break. Remember the Simpsons episode where Flanders gives “Imagination Christmas” to his kids (Yay! I got a jump rope!). Well this is Imagination Spring Break… it’s as good as you want it to be.
