I think i have mastered the art of being frugal while on vacation. Whether it is a big family trip or just a weekend getaway, i know how to save a dime. On our big family trip to Disney we always drive. It is cheaper to put 5 in a car rather then a plane. I pack breakfast which saves time and $. Then i also pack a lunch for us too. We stay at the military disney resort since my husband is military. Its a very nice resort with cheap rates. Before arriving we stop at walmart and pick up breakfast for the week. Usually cereal, milk, fruit, breakfast bar,ect. Not eatting out for breakfast saves us alot. I also buy some snacks for the hotel. My favorite tip came from my girlfriend. Before the trip i shop at the Disney store outlet and buy souvenirs. I love that tip! I also pick up glow bracelets so the kids have some and they wont ask for them at the park. We then buget our money at the resturants. Does anyone have any other great tips. Please share them with me.
