The kids and I decided last night to make a long weekend trip to the beach. My grandparents bought the beach house in the 1960's. My grandma is 95 and doesn't go to the beach anymore. My parents spend alot of time there and asked up to join them this weekend. I did go shopping and spent $30 at publix and $50 at Walmart. Some of the Walmart money were videos to watch in the car and some candy to eat on the way. Anyhow, I still stayed within my $100 for the week. We will probably buy some shrimp at the beach and cook it. We are not going out or buying anything extra while we are gone.
When we travel we will bring out big cooler and fill it with drinks and snacks. It saves a ton of money to not have to stop at a convenience store. We will stop and get fast food, but we don't buy drinks and share fries so it is not that bad. When we travel we always stay where there is a kitchen, or we camp and cook over the fire or the camp stove. It is so much cheaper for us to rent a cabin or a condo and cook then to rent two hotel rooms and have to go out.
Have a good and safe weekend. May the Lord bless you!
