I saved hundreds of dollars on food during our vacation this week.

For many, vacation is a time to splurge and I completely respect that decision, but when you are feeding a crew of over the top eaters like my guys, sometimes that splurge would cost hundreds. My kids agreed they’d rather put that money to other uses.

If you haven’t read my post with all my tips for Saving Money on Food during vacation, it’s a must read. All your comments are priceless and add so much to the discussion.

While I stand by all my money saving ideas, honestly, I had never put them to use at a luxurious resort before, especially with one which didn’t have a kitchen. Quite frankly, I’m still chuckling at what our maid must have thought.

I am sure she hasn’t seen the likes ofย  our “restaurant” before, but I did clean up for her. ๐Ÿ™‚ People who stay at this hotel, don’t try and save money on food, until us.

I am so thankful for this wonderful gift from the Food Blog Forum, and even more thankful for five children who just GET “me,” and never utter a word of complaint, but you must watch my tiny video to take the journey with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have a funny story on how you save money on food?

We’d all LOVE to hear about it in the comments.

I can’t wait to see what you are creating in the kitchen this week.
