Americans spend more time planning vacations than their finances

A financial comparison site conducted a survey to compare how much time people spend planning a vacation versus planning their finances. Considering how much more complicated and necessary finances are than vacation planning, these results may be surprising:

• More than half of respondents spend more or an equal amount of time planning vacations than their finances (54.1%),

• 1 in 5 Americans (20%) spends more time planning vacations vs. managing their money

• Of the 11.2% of people that reported “spending more than 5X planning their vacation than planning their finances,” nearly 60% were men
