Recession Chic - The Staycation

Summer is the time for weekend getaways, road trips and mini vacations.

We're all envious of the people that are flying off to the Caribbean or Hawaii. We'd love to lounge at the beach or pool and soak up some sun. A day of pampering at the spa sounds amazing.

But alas, many of us no longer have the luxury of three-month-long summer breaks nor do we have the vacation days or money saved up to jet-off for a quick getaway. That doesn't mean you can't relax and unwind resort-style in the comforts of your own home and town, though!

Grab a large umbrella, some suntan lotion and make your way to the nearest beach! Or light some candles and put on the soothing music and give yourself a luxurious facial at home. Need a little more excitement? Round up the gals and make your favorite mix drink and serve them up in a new set of cute cocktail glasses!

The possibilities are endless on your staycation! And while a stayaction is a great way to decompress while saving money, we're taking it one step further! Click on the slideshow to see some of our ideas and get inspired with our staycation picks, all under $50!
