I spent the last few days away at a blogging conference in North Carolina (it was so pretty and warm there!), and enjoyed meeting up with other bloggers so much. On the way back though, my friend Mara and I raced to make our planes (without time for lunch), so I figured I’d just pick something up after waiting through the long line at airport security.
After getting myself checked through, I scrambled to the bathroom (um, which I’d also skipped in my hurry to make the flight), and then stopped at a snack kiosk where I picked up a Snickers Bar and water bottle. (Just a few dollars, right?)
Clearly I was shocked when the cashier rang me up at a whopping SIX DOLLARS AND TWENTY SIX CENTS (I am not kidding folks!), and determined I will never go on a trip without a Snickers bar in hand. Yikes!
Do you have any great tips on traveling frugally? Clearly I could use them ~ but being home safe and sound makes it completely worth it.
(And, on a very random note, in the restroom in Charlotte they had the sweetest woman keeping the bathrooms clean, who went way above and beyond to be awesome. She did have a tip jar which I was more than happy to add to ~ while I didn’t enjoy paying $4 for a candy bar, paying a small tip for a clean bathroom at an airport felt incredibly reasonable to me!)
