Okay, so we going to disney and to the beach. WE are driving just shy of 1900 miles round trip. (estimated fuel cost around 400$)

To save money I plan to Bring most our food with us. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

On the road I will pack breakfast and lunch and we will eat a hot dinner once we reach our friends home.

Breakfast on the road will be muffins and fruit (apple, banana, or frozen grapes) Drink will be flavored water i got on sale haha)

Lunch will be Sandwhiches , chips and fruit and veggies! (water or pre frozen lemonaid in bottles)

And so on...

Dh says hat I am INSANE to bring a bunch of food.

But I will save hundreds of dollars if I do this!

I can bring tuna which I got for free

Drinks which again I only paid cents for

cereal which was free

oatmeal

side dishes

etc...

Only really need to buy meats.

I have spent a total of 17 dollars for almost 7 dyas worth of food, drink and snack. aside from meat which I wont buy until there. Our trip is 9 days buy I figure we can splurge and buy food out as a treat since it is a vasation! :)

AM I CRAZY? OR TOO CHEAP?
