On the flip side...
Right after posting my experience about Donovan’s, where we spent more on the meal than we spent on one of our flights home, I found this blog. It’s an amazing story from a guy who voluntarily spent a month with a $1/day food budget. If I had seen this before I went on vacation, I may not have been able to spend so much on my meal.
“For the month of November, Iâ€™m only spending $30 on food. The only exception will be things that are freely available to the average person (salt taken from restaurants, sauce packets from Taco Bell, free coffee from an office). Buying in advance is fine, but at the end of the month, it all has to add up to $30 or less.”
