Frugal Friday - road trip essentials


Tomorrow morning my sister and I will be road tripping up to Buffalo NY for one of my dearest friends weddings! I'm so excited as I'll be able to see some wonderful girlfriends who I haven't seen in awhile! It is about a 6 and a half hour drive, so we'll be leaving at 5am to make it to the hotel early in time to make it to the ceremony at 2pm!

Bring a travel mug - We're waking at 5am so I figure we can have coffee here and breakfast, and then we'll get our travel mugs ready (mine with tea and hers with coffee) to start our trip.

Bring a water Siggy bottle or just a water bottle. Saving on water and on stopping every hour or so will help to save money and time!

A Must for road trips is to pack snacks. Like above, it will help to save money and time. I figure a snack for every hour, so we have all natural fruit rollups, peaches, apples, granola bars and chips.

Mapping out your destination. Using mapquest, or if you have a magellin can help to save on gas and time!

Packing the car the night before will save time, and remember to pack all essentials so there is no need to buy extras like toothpaste, toothbrush, makeup etc.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Wish us luck on our drive!
