As a single mom, everything my family does is based on a budget. So, although we can save money by living in an RV, it can become expensive pretty quickly if I’m not careful. I’ve scoured the internet and here are a few ways for my family and yours to save once you’re at the campground.
1. Eat in. Or at least grill right outside your door. Eating out is expensive – but if you have to do it, eat out at lunch time rather than at dinner time. And search online for coupons before you do so. I like to use restaurant.com, but I also buy a $25 gift card weekly from giftcardgranny.com at a discount, and make some of those gift cards for restaurants. Or, buy your gift cards at the grocery store where you get gas discounts based on your spending inside the store.
2. Don’t pay for full service hookups if you don’t need to. Only pay for 50 amp service if you need to use both your air conditioning units. Don’t pay for sewer – empty when you leave the park.
4. Staying weekly or monthly has a lower nightly rate than simply paying the nightly rate.
