 Wishbone's Tip of the Month:

Many people are finding themselves still a little bit nervous about heading out for a full out vacation. That's okay. Sometimes stay-cations are the very best kind. If you decide to stick close to home don't forget that it IS a vacation though. Some work is okay but take time to RELAX like Wishbone. Pop some popcorn, pour a big drink, grab your sunglasses, and head outside for some long overdue relaxation! 

Here are some other tips Wishbone has come up with to make your stay-cation fantastic:

1.Choose a theme - maybe your stay-cation will include visiting 5 local beaches, maybe it will include watching all the Die Hard movies! Whatever your preference, a stay-cation can be even more fun with a theme.

2.Don't tell anyone that you are on a stay-cation, somehow a stay-cation isn't as respected for privacy as a vacation is and you might find your phone buzzing more than you like.

3.Splurge a little, keep a budget like you would for any vacation but just because you're on a stay-cation it doesn't mean you can't splurge a bit! Eat out at that restaurant you normally wouldn't or purchase that yummy chocolate dessert you normally wouldn't!
