JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- I just returned from vacation and truth be told, there's never enough vacation. Do you know most Americans squander vacation? They don't even use all the vacation their employer lets them have.

Other people are like me. They want every last minute you can have away from work.

So do you know now there are many employers that will let you buy more vacation time? I know this sounds crazy, but let's say your employer gives you two weeks a year. They will let you pay them some money to get a third week.

In many cases, it's actually a real deal! Employers have all different ways of treating time off.

A lot of employers are going to something called paid time off. That pays you for sick, leave, or vacation. And you can roll into that bundle additional time off. I wish I had that choice.
