Spend one day at a big amusement park or Major League Baseball game or anyplace they have you “captured” and you will appreciate the art of savvy shopping.
I love roller coasters and baseball as much as anyone, but paying five or six dollars for a soda or three dollars for some water will jump on you like a tick on a fat dog really quick.
My family and I are on vacation in sunny Florida and having a wonderful time, but the costs add up quickly when you are trying to feed five. It seems like I could be feeding 50 for what some of these places charge. I understand. As a matter of fact, I probably am feeding 50 – so I guess that is good.
