While we were in Sacramento Drew and I talked about how important it is for us to try and budget better while on vacation.
Since I am out of my usual routine, I also seem to be out of my routine of being careful what I purchase, etc. Also, I am not as able to shop the ads, or get as good of deals as I grocery shop, etc.
Anyway, we are trying to figure out an approximate per-day total so that we can have something to shoot for.
I am thinking 50 dollars/day (not including lodgings or gas) while we're staying in hotel, and 25/day when staying with family. We still have restaurants we want to go to while we're staying with our families, so that price seems about right.
What do you guys do on vacation? Do you have similar issues to me?
