Do you bring food with you when you go on vacation? Or do you eat out for every meal?

  • That's funny....we're leaving in a couple of days for vacation and I'm planning out my grocery list, of course we're going in our camper that has a fridge, microwave, stovetop & oven so it's just like being at home.

  • We usually stay in a suite so we have a full kitchen. We'll usually buy things groceries for when we're just in the hotel and we'll go out to eat if we're already out and about.

  • We are driving down the shore for a week at the end of this month, we'll bring most of our food and cook most meals. We'll do a few cheapie dinners out with the kids, and maybe bagels for breakfast one morning and another out to breakfast, but the rest we'll cook at the rental home.

  • We bring snacks and breakfast foods.

  • if we are driving we keep a cooler full of snacks and sandwhiches and stuff so we dont have to eat out on the way. then, if we have a fridge to keep stuff in we will buy some groceries. we eat out and in about equal amounts. if there is a way to prepare food then we eat in more.

  • My vacation is not cooking or bring food.

  • It depends where we're going and what our accommodations are going to be like. When we rented a cabin on in Martha's Vineyard with my BIL's and their families, we all brought food to prepare and we each cooked a different night of the stay. We also went out a couple times as well. It's nice if you have a kitchen to bring things for lunch too, because all those meals out can add up. If we are staying somewhere that only has a fridge we bring juices and snack and eat our meals out.

    In general, if you stay some place that has a kitchen you pay a little more, but save on meals. If you stay some place that doesn't have a kitchen you save on your stay but pay out on the meals. I feel like either way it's a wash.
