  • When I used to be able to afford to travel, we always packed a cooler with all sorts of things.

  • depends on how far were going. if its a 3 hour trip where were going, we'll just stop by the gas station to grab some drinks and I pack some gold fish or pretzels for DD. If its 4 or more hours, Ill pack a cooler

  • We do a little of both. Basically, drinks and snacks like cheese sticks are in the cooler and we buy our meals as we go.

  • We always bring a cooler with drinks everywhere we go. DH is a green tea addict(lol) and has to have a specific type. It's so much cheaper to buy them at the grocery store than to buy them at a convience store

  • We don't do any "traveling" where we won't be home by nightfall... But if we're going to be gone all day somewhere, we usually pack drinks and snacks.

  • I always pack a cooler of drinks. Buying drinks at the gas station is a major rip-off.

  • We have water bottles and spare water bottles for most trips. Cooler gets filled with veggies and sandwich stuff. Occasionally we'll buy some drinks on the road. But drinks are easy since we mainly drink water.
