Winter is halfway over, which can only mean one thing: time to plan for your spring and summer vacations! Many people have felt the effects of our current economy; often leaving them with bad or low credit. But with a little creativity and planning, you can still have a vacation that not only saves you a bit of cash, but also gives you memories for years to come.

Great Ideas for Taking a Staycation This Year

Most people find it nearly impossible to stay home and be on a vacation. But with a few simple rules from Lifehacker, you'll find yourself relaxed and enjoying a wonderful time before you even realize it!

  1. Treat It like a Real Vacation
    The worse thing you can do is not take your stay-cation seriously! So take time off and tell everyone you're on vacation, they don't need to know you're destination is home.
  2. Plan Your Itinerary
    Just like a vacation that takes you away from home, plan your events each day and even budget!
  3. Go Off the Grid
    Even though you're not going anywhere, no one else needs to know that! Set your email to away, hide your phones and turn off the computer!
  4. Treat Your Home like a Hotel
    One of the best things about being on vacation is not cleaning. So have your home cleaned before your vacation so you can be carefree the rest of the week.
  5. Get a Sitter
    Treat yourself and your special someone to some adult time. Go see a movie, or spend the day on some hiking trails.
  6. Splurge
    Use some of that money you budgeted for splurging. Go out and eat somewhere you've never been before. Or visit sites around your local area you haven't seen.
  7. Take Pictures
    Capture all your memories and make them last for your future enjoyment too
