Omg…I could NOT handle this.  I am so sorry you’re dealing with this.  Just be honest with them and let them know that you love them and you love spending time with them, but you just cannot afford to go.

Hm, my friends travel & do stuff a lot more often than I do. If I can’t afford it, I just tell them I can’t afford it. It’s not a big deal. It’s not my business whether they can/can’t afford all these trips, I just only go on the ones I can reasonably afford to go on, and pass on the rest.

Just say no. You decide what to do with your money, not them.

this may have been fun when I was single but I’d hate it now. Plus, nothign bothers me more than watching people overspend on vacations when they don’t really have the means to do so. A friend of mine went on a cruise with student loan money and wanted me to join. No thanks!

Wow, that sounds like fun as long as you have the funds and want to go on these trips.  If you dont, I would simply say that you can afford to go and sit it out.

I can see the  good intentions they have, but it’s not realistic for people to blow that kind of money on trips like that. Not to mention using up vacation time.
