Now, remember one of the biggest expenses that are incurred while we are “out and about” are eating expenses. So, if you are going to eat out – try to plan on eating out for lunch. Lunch menus are always cheaper than dinner menus.

I also recommend checking out before you leave the house – this is an easy way to save a bundle at some of your local restaurants.

Make sure you pack snacks – you and the kids! I always have a Fiber One or Kashi Bar in my truck for me and a few goodies in my purse for the kiddos.

Most importantly…HAVE FUN!
