I am so excited. This is definitely my best vlog yet. Maybe because I was doing something that I thoroughly love. We traveled to two of my daughters’ cheer competitions. This is my favorite part of the all-star cheer season. It is so much fun attending these events and watching the awesome teams and chatting with some amazing cheer parents. This is an exciting time, but also an expensive time of year. Between gas, hotel, and food, our budget can be near a breaking point. Do not fear. Cheer Up is here to help you save some cash. There are lots of secrets that cheer veterans know to keep your money in your pocket.
My family had a blast over the week period that we attended two competition in two different states. This could have definitely put us in the poor house, but we know how to save some money. My specialty is saving money on food. On this episode I get to introduce you to the ladies that gave me all my skills. Angela and Laura pay us a visit and give us a tutorial on packing some fun snacks. They blog at About A Mom and quite creative in the food department. Packing a variety of snacks is the key.
After the competition we like skip the snack bar and find a nice restaurant for a good meal. Here is where I shine. I am the coupon queen. I have found some really great coupon books. You can find city specific coupon books filled with travel, entertainment, and yes, restaurant coupons. My favorite is the Enjoy the City books. So many great coupons,
We have food covered now we need to find a place to stay. I found an awesome cheer dad with an epic tip. Instead of a hotel, round up a whole gang of cheer families and rent a vacation home. Doug from Tumble Tree Twisters recommended Homeaway.com and VRBO.com. What a great tip.
I had a ball doing this episode. It was so fun traveling around with my girls and talking to some really great people Enjoy and happy saving.
