Moving, cheap ideas for the trip?
We're moving from FL to CO in a month, getting into the packing and planning and such. We're trying to make the roadtrip as cheap as possible. The first thing that was obvious to us was to make food and bring it with us, because food on the road is so expensive (and unhealthy, and I'm not likely to find vegan stuff at truck stops). I thought I'd post here to see if anyone else has cheapy suggestions for a long drive. We'll probably get a hotel room at least once during the drive (I'm 6 months pregnant and we have a truck, so there's no room to lay down and fall asleep). We're also having my husband's parents drive with us (they have a bigger truck), so we're cutting the moving costs there by only needing a U-Haul trailer attached to their truck (they're paying for their own gas, thank god). Anyway, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything else, so if you guys have some suggestions, I'd appreciate it! Oh, and I just signed up for the Freecycle mailing lists for where we're moving to and where we currently are...if anyone here hasn't checked Freecycle out yet, you should. I'm amazed at all the good things I'm seeing given away! It seems like a really great resource.
