Packing Food For Road Trips
You can save a lot of money packing food for road trips instead of eating out every meal, and by not spending so much eating out, you can afford to spend that money on something else and maybe have a nicer vacation! In this video, we discuss all kinds of ideas to make food for road trips convenient and to make it a special treat for the kids.
Most families go out to eat so often at home that the novelty has worn off. The next time you travel try packing your own food, not only to save money but also to experience something fun and different. You might even try half and half. Pack for one meal and eat out for another.
And don’t forget breakfast — Sometimes getting on the road the first thing in the morning is such a rush that it might be easier to wait and eat breakfast after you have driven an hour or two. This works especially well if you have to start out in the wee hours of the morning. If your budget allows it, pack foods that your family only gets for special occasions.
Watch this video and get some easy ideas for meals and snacks to take on the road! These same tips can easily be used for picnics, school sports events and games, camping, fireworks, or any time you’re not home for an extended time.
