I recently completed a 2 week Florida to Maine, east coast road trip with my 4 year old daughter in tow.
The first 10 days of it I had my friend Katie with me and she helped share a small part of the cost.
I was curious as to how frugally do I really travel?
So I will lay it all out here and let you decide!
FL –> NH: East Coast Road Trip #katella2016 #aubsanditravel2016
Car Rental: $370.19
Room and Board: $209*
Food: $265.59 (breakdown: $154.97 at grocery store -here’s my travel kitchen post and I also buy food for a few of the meals when we’re couchsurfing at friends; $110.82 food out at restaurants)
Cash: $200 ($60, 3-day drive north; $100, for day in NYC; $40, drive home)
CITY TRAVEL: $39.50 (parking, train, subway)
Misc.- Staples/The Redhead Project: $15.42
THAT’S A GRAND TOTAL OF: $1,365.40 if you take out the normal grocery bill, which for me is $125/week so $250 total, it drops the trip to costing $1,115.40
or $79.67 a day !
*This is the grand total of these two items; however, I shared the cost of these with Katie so I didn’t pay that amount, my total came to $73/day for 2 people FL to ME East Coast road trip.
I think that’s pretty frugal.
What do you think?
Now to begin to save for Greece…
