How Many Vacation Days Do You Have Saved Up?

I'm Asking: How Many Vacation Days Do You Have Saved Up?

A fellow Sugar girl casually mentioned that she has nearly a month's worth of vacation time saved up. She's closing in on the number where the days will stop accruing until she takes some time off — it's time for her to schedule a vacay, pronto. I already took a big vacation this year and used most of my days, but I know some of you are compiling days like they're going out of style. How many days do you have in your back pocket?

I have about 4 days in the future planned and about 2 days left to play with (sad). My company actually just sent an email out this week requiring everyone (due to financial reasons) to be under 32 hours by the end of the fiscal year. I have co-workers who now have to use 120-130 hours before the end of September.

I have 5 weeks of vacation time saved up. I have to sit on them in case I get laid off in the near future. If I'm still around by the end of the year, I will have to use up 3 of those weeks, because only 2 will roll over.

I have 25 days saved and I have to use them by the end of the year. I have no vacations planned this year so I guess I'll just have lots of three days weekends!

I have 23 days but a big trip planned this summer to use up half. There are many people in my office who have maxed out and are losing every paycheck.

How do all of you have so many days saved up?! And can I have some of your extra time, please??? I've only got 5 days but I always travel around the holidays to be with my family so there goes half of my annual vacation time. Between weddings and other random family events I haven't been on a real vacation since college because I can't seem to get enough days to do so - and now I finally have the funds to go on a trip. It is frustrating, really frustrating.

I have 9 full days of PTO and an additional 4 days of sick time. I don't use them much, so it's pretty easy for me to accumulate them.

I get 15 vacation days a year, but they have to be used during that year you can't roll any over. I have used 7 and i will use another 5 in a couple of weeks. I think i will use the last three to use around christmas time.

I just took a 10-day vacation last month, but I have 15 days left in my vacation bank. I can bank up to a max of 30 days so I'm well under the limit. Alas, some of my co-workers have almost maxed out their vacation banks (and some of them can bank up to 40 days) and many of them don't seem to have any plans to take any time off. It's quite depressing.

I still have all my 10 days left, I've taken vacation this year but I've been able to do it with holidays and our one-free day off a month. Althuogh 6 of those 10 days are accounted for . . . saving the last 4 for Thanksgiving and Xmas.

Justa few days worth since I started with my current job just last year. Also, I got married this year, so between the wedding and honeymoon, I'll use up all my vaca this year and have to take some unpaid leave for some of that time off as well...Although I've never been great about rolling time over. If the vacation time is there, I'm going to use it!
