Tuesday Tips & Tricks: Eat cheap @ the beach

2 Aug

This weeks tip is about being at the beach (since that’s where I am this week!) My tip is how to eat cheap while at the beach. A lot of time when you go to the beach, especially the big, touristy type beaches, it’s very easy to eat local food whether it be pizza, sandwiches or other beach food. But a smart and easy way to save money would be to pack a picnic. Bring a cooler with lots of cold drinks and sandwiches, chips, last nights left overs, whatever you want really since you can bring it from home!

Where we’ll be staying at the beach we’ll be bringing down some snacks and probably going back to our room for lunch I would imagine. It’s within walking distance of the beach and super easy to do.

What do you usually do when you go to the beach?

    We live about 15 minutes from Cocoa Beach, though we usually hit the Patrick AFB beach, since it’s not nearly as busy as Cocoa Beach. I always take a cooler full of food, snacks and drinks. My nearly 6-year-old is constantly hungry, and playing in the sand, running in the waves and hunting seashells really works up an appetite! Other times we’ll hit this really yummy pizza place down near Patrick AFB for dinner on Wednesdays – they have a great Family Special that night – then hang out on the beach for an hour or so before heading home. We love the beach, though having a baby who looks like a powdered donut within five minutes of arriving is always interesting…
