SpecialClassical Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 Hello! We are going on vacation soon and we are trying to save money. This was to be our "BIG" trip since our two older children might not be with us on too many more. However, our children wanted a toned down vacation want to cut out eating out and staying at nicer hotels in order to save money for two things: a used jet ski and family donations to ministries/charities. It will be an even split with the savings. So, I saw reviews online about Super 8 and all of them said the hotels were clean. That is my biggest concern. Would Motel 6 be a decent choice as well? This is a road trip and we just need a clean place to sleep. Our big destination is Niagra Falls and I think we will just get a nicer hotel there since the kids will have a chance to swim. ALso, we are trying to eat healthier and that isn't easy on the road. I can pack many things for breakfast and some lunch. In order to make it be less of a hassle for me I would like to pick up some snacks and lunch items at Trader Joe's. There is one we can go to on the first day of our trip, so I can stock up a bit. With the above information you can see that we will only have coolers, no fridge, micro, or oven at the hotels. I'm used to doing a fair amount of cooking on vacations, but it won't work this time. Any suggestions for Trader Joe's? Yummy stuff that kids will like? Thank you so much for any suggestions. I'm off to the store with my littles, but will check back at lunch!
