Do you really want to know how much your entire trip costs?

Jump to last reply

DH and I were discussing our trip to Europe next year and he suggested I start a spreadsheet to track the costs. By the way, we are both accountants so this is second nature to us.

My philosophy is, however, why ruin a good thing? We have already paid for some items of the trip, such as hotel and apt deposits, airfares (two) , car rentals, and now are deciding on some prepaid tours. Those prepaid items really don't count, do they? The savings I have put back is still untouched, so why worry about what is already paid for?

Knowing the full cost will only depress us and will make him be worried the entire time we re there about every little expense and he won't enjoy it......maybe.

What do you think? Do you prefer to know or not know how much it is costing you?
