I remember two things from Mothers Day last year:

  1. Cuddling with my baby boy
  2. Wondering how much my husband had spent on my gift

Pretty sad right?

To say our budget last year was tight is an understatement. It really puts a damper on things when you wonder if you can even afford that lunch with your mom or not.

These are great! Holidays can be such a strain on our budget, I'm so glad there are military discounts for mothers day so I can actually get my mom something awesome this year! Saved!

Luckily this year our story has changed, we have successfully budgeted our finances to get ahead and plan for holidays. I can go ahead and enjoy that lunch and not have to worry about what my hubby gets me (I hope it’s a massage!)

After all, unless you are literally living on nothing, you can’t deprive yourself 100% of the time. You need that occasional getaway, you need that holiday splurge, and you need that extra bottle of wine when your husband is away.

The good thing about being a military family is that we have the option to use military discounts at certain locations to lighten the load of holidays and vacations. Here are some options to treat that special momma in your life this year.

Side note: Please remember that locations and discount amounts always vary. Always ask and be courteous if the location near you does not participate in military discounts.
