By Peggy Jo Goodfellow, Arizona Farm Bureau: Holiday season means holiday travel. So, while traveling during the holidays, the last thing you want to worry about is saving money…but it can be easier than you think.
When my children were younger we would try to save money by packing sandwiches and snacks. We’d find a nice shady spot to stop for lunch and have a picnic. The kids could stretch they legs and run off some of that energy kids seem to store up while traveling.
One time we were next to a pasture with cattle grazing nearby. Another time we stopped to have lunch in a flower garden surrounded by tall date palms. Both times, lunch turned into a fun learning experience.
