6. Try Not To Eat Out Everyday
I know part of the appeal of traveling is to get to throw yourself into the local cuisine and lounge around inside restaurants, but as you can imagine, $20 meals three times a day puts a big dent in your wallet. If you want to take a trip on a budget, try to eat in.

If you're booking a hotel, find one that offers complimentary breakfast and then store sandwich fixings in your mini fridge so you can make lunch (and throw it in your bag for when you're sightseeing later.)

But this is where booking an Airbnb or hostel might be a better option: You have access to kitchens! You can literally make breakfast, lunch, and dinner at home, saving yourself some major cash. Both of those options come with fully equipped kitchens, so you don't have to rely on pricey menus to get food.
