My Vacation on a Budget

The Sternwheelers
I'm going to San Diego on vacation this year!   And of course I need to stay on a budget.   I've started following the deals for San Diego on Groupon and Living Social and I now have a few awesome gift certificates for places to eat, and even a boat ride!!

I've really been loving this!  Not only is it saving us money, but it's helping to plan what we do. :)  Mapquest really makes this easy, since you just plug in your information and you can see exactly how far away the deal is from your hotel.
BRILLIANT!!  Not to mention the reviews you can find online.  Normally we just find something random that is close to where we are when we are hungry.  That way isn't as nice to the wallet. :):)

Now I just need to find a deal for the zoo! :)

Oh wow. Can I ride with you? Lol. My mom wants us to go to San Diego this summer as well. My little sister is in the Navy and is stationed there. She will be deploying on her ship for a while after the summer so we want to visit one last time before she goes. I'll be sure to follow and see if you share some of your awesome finds so I can grab them too.

I've been thinking about San Diego too this year! What a great idea to look at Groupon and other daily deal sites!

I know, eating out is one of the biggest expenses on that I won't give up :):) So helps so much!!

If I see more deals I'll let you know!
