Saving money on our road trip.

Well, we headed to Florida very early this morning. I prepared ahead by baking muffins for breakfast in the car. Dh packed a cooler with drinks, so we would only need to stop for coffee (of course!) and lunch. That went well....

For lunch I had coupons for Arby's and we had our own drinks. Well Arby's was running a deal on roast beef sandwiches and when we added our coupons....here is what we got and what it totaled.

4 Regular Roast Beef Sandwiches
4 curly fries
Drinks that we brought with us...

Total: $4.99 for all of us!!

That was a great surprise, and hopefully will help since the gas prices are so high! We passed a Publix distribution center and I wondered about taking a tour... lol! Another time perhaps...
I'll check in on the next leg of our journey.... sure wish I had some Dave Ramsey CD's to listen to in the car. I'm thinking that would be great for the return trip.

Hubby and I are always frugal on the road. We take our own drinks, snacks, and sandwiches (when needed). We very seldom order drinks when we go out to eat--water works for us. :)

Hey, that's some great "frugaling"! :)

I also wanted to pop in and say, "Tag You're It!"

Good job! I've been wondering how to be frugal when traveling.
