Venus' Journey:

Planning Expenses on the Road

Week 3 of Project Money Challenge, and my daughter and I are traveling to Mississippi for my dad’s memorial service. Besides the obvious emotions of losing a parent, and getting chance to be around family, I am concerned about money spending. I am not worried about myself, I enjoy packing healthy snacks, (much cheaper) and not eating fast food, but having a daughter and her cousins who parents who buy fast food all the time causes me to be a bit worried. This is not a habit I have any issues with but I worry about my daughter, Madison, feeling like I’m taking the fun out of things by not allowing her to eat fast food. Do I stick with my gun and don’t spend money on fast food and keep my healthy snacks? Or do I cave and do what everyone else is doing and buy food fast? I don’t know we will see how it goes.
