When we travel we always pack lunches and snacks and the savings are massive. It costs an absolute fortune to buy take away for a family on road trips. We met some folks on our travels that thought this odd and bought all of their lunches and snacks. Interesting how everyone views travel and expenses in different ways.

  • It depends on where we are going. Long trips we try and take a packed lunch especially if we know we are going to have takeaway for tea.


  • I think if you can take your own lunches or snacks there are so many things to do that become far more affordable

    • Exactly! Why waste money on expensive food and drink. There are better things to spend money on :)

      • It also teaches your kids to save! We add up how much money we would have probably spent on take away lunches and the kids are excited to be able to direct it to something else on our holidays!


  • You do save so much money packing your own lunch and more than often it is healthy and tastes better than what you would buy!

    • Spot on – your own lunches are healthy and you know what is in your food.
