As you know, we recently took a car trip to Atlanta. One way we try
to save a little money on the way is by packing snacks and juice.
This way we aren’t tempted to load up on snacks when we stop for
gas. If we know we will be on the road for more than one meal, we
will try to pack sandwiches for at least one of them. We usually treat
ourselves to one meal on the road (usually Chick- Fil- A).
It takes between $13- $20 to feed our family at a fast food
restaurant (unless we hit up the dollar menu). It takes less than $5 to make sandwiches for everyone.
So…it only makes sense (and cents) to put a little work in at the
beginning to save a little in the end.
