Now for a little something extra...
On families.com they had an unique tip that I thought I would share with you:
After traveling and lodging, food is the biggest expense while traveling. But you can get in some great meals for $10, $5 or less when you cook them yourself. How can you cook while traveling? There are a few fun and inventive ways to be frugal here.
Bring the slow cooker
While many hotels don't allow cooking in the room unless you have a suite that includes a kitchen, you can still use your crockpot in your car! If you have a long trip, at least four hours, then you are all set for a great meal. Add a liner to your crockpot, fill it up with ingredients and plug it into your car using an inverter. You can help secure it in the car with a cake pan. When you get to your destination, a hot meal will be waiting. Remove the liner for a fast cleanup.Enjoy and Happy Slow Cooking...Hugs...
