Renovations are tough to live with. There is the inconvenience of having to deal with all those strangers in your home – private spaces as well as everywhere else. Then there is the dust, the clutter, the noise and it all becomes a stressful nightmare that has broken up many marriages. There is another way. A fun way. Make that renovation project a free vacation!
There isn’t much worse than living in a home that is torn to pieces. So, turn that nightmare into sipping mimosas on a tropical island. Live in a warm, island hut on the shore of crystal blue waters. And don’t spend a dime to do it.
If you have the cash for your renovations, leave that in the bank. Open up a couple of credit cards that offer huge incentive sign up bonuses and rewards programs. Check those rewards programs very carefully to make sure they offer what you think they do. You are looking for vacation offers, travel agency offers, airline miles and anything else you might need for your renovation vacation.
Then use those credit cards to pay your contractors and purchase any supplies, hardware and equipment that might be needed for the renovation. The more you spend on the credit card, the more vacation you’ll get for free.
Now keep in mind, this is going to be a disaster if you didn’t already have the money for the renovation. You will need to pay those credit cards off before any interest accrues.
So, charge your renovation and then use your bonuses, rewards and points for scheduling your vacation. Of course, you’ll want to take the vacation while they have the house torn up. Have fun and enjoy your renovation vacation!
