When the Experience Is Worth Every PennyHeather Sokol
But, I’m beginning to learn, sometimes, it’s totally worth it!
Twice just last week, I had the opportunity to try a few things that I normally would have shied away from due to cost. The first was a completely amazing whale watching expedition. Later that week, I braved a fantastic zip line adventure park with a few of my friends.
Turns out? They were both completely worth the $50 price tag!
I experienced thrills like you wouldn’t believe — the power of the ocean combined with the beauty of a humpback whale, the excitement of speeding through the trees combined with the terror of making the leap. Both experiences were just beyond amazing.
And, both were things I would have been too frugal to consider. The problem i, I wouldn’t have known the regret. So, how do you balance frugality with experiencing life? How do you know when to budget carefully and when to splurge?
How do I keep from missing out on something like this?

Yes, I had the chance to experience both whale watching and ziplining for free, but I would so pay for them both again! Huge thanks to 7 Seas Whale Watch and Go Ape Adventure Park for an incredible week.
