If you fail to plan; you plan to fail. I feel that is what I am doing now. DH and I have come to a stalemate over shopping and cooking. I come home from work exhausted not wanting to cook or figure out what to make (not in that order).
We have a vacation planned in our future. This has brought on some anxiety on my part. Seeing a recent gain on the scale this week and knowing that this is what happens when I don't plan. While I know some of our meals will be in restaurants I do have some knowledge to help me make better decisions on meals. With that said, I have planned to make a trip to Costco prior to leaving. I will buy bottled water, PPV and car friendly snacks, and ingredients to make breakfasts and lunches to keep bad decision making to a minimum.
A co-worker recently went on a cross country road trip. She is one of the most frugal people I know. She said they kept dining out to a minimum by having a cool packed with bottled water, snacks, and things to make lunches. I assume they had a lot of picnic type meals while they were traveling. What a wonderful way to enhance your travel experience? We have planned to spend a lot of time at parks on our vacation, so this is definitely a wonderful solution.
