This is not specifically travel-related, of course, but a) it is Friday and b)  it is MY blog so I can write about whatever I want 😀  Though it is true that we used many of these same principles to save money on our recent trip to San Juan Puerto Rico

You might remember a few weeks ago that I wrote a guest post over on about what a budget for a family of 8 looks like.  That generated a lot of good comments, but one commenter took it to the next level with a post questioning whether my $700 monthly food budget was even possible.

(SEE ALSO: How do you spend so little on food??)


Today’s guest post is a rebuttal of that called “How to Eat on Less Than $1.00/meal

Remember, the less money you spend on food, the more you can spend on travel!!  Hope you enjoy the post!
