Trade Spaces for an Inexpensive Getaway

contest winner icon

You can have an inexpensive getaway weekend or mini vacation just by trading spaces with a friend or family member. For example, my brother lives in the city and I live in the country about 45 miles away. If he is going out of town, he lets me know and then I can go spend the weekend in his apartment and experience city life. It is so much fun just to sleep in his bed; sit on his back deck with a cup coffee, etc.


Although my daughter lives in the same town as I, I enjoy staying at her house while she is gone because she has satellite TV, a whirlpool bathtub, and an in ground pool, and I get to enjoy it all for free!

Love this idea :-) Hey, take it a step further and house sit for a neighbor, co-worker, etc. while they're out of town :-) It would be beneficial for them and an adventure for you :-)

Some of the campgrounds offer free weekend to help clean up before the summer rush. You spend a few hours cleaning up and the rest of the weekend is yours to enjoy.
