7. Don’t Be Too Attached To Your Favorite Foods and Brands

Perhaps you love peanut butter when you are at home, but if you try to find it in Europe or Asia you will only find it in the “foreign import” section of the grocery store and it will cost five times what you would pay for it at home.

Take a break on your familiar foods and even your well-known brands and buy the cheap local favorites of the country you are visiting instead. When you drink the local beer and buy the food that most people eat in that country, it will be much cheaper than imported items. Who knows, you might just discover a brand new favorite?

With these tips you will be able to stretch your meager travel budget further and see more of the world for less money. Have fun and enjoy your budget travels!
