On your travels to wherever these may be, take a packed lunch and/or a snack, your own hot water and a good magazine. This simple act of anti-consumerism defiance will save you a lot of money over a year. And please don’t feel bad for the fast food, cafe and restaurant owners as they have enough loyal patrons.
Wherever Danny and I go, if we are going to be away from home for morning or afternoon tea and/or lunch we take our vintage Picnic King case and thermos flasks. We make up our sandwiches, throw in something sweet, top up the tea bags, fill the thermos flasks with hot water, put the milk in a cooler bag and hit the road.
You can do the math and work out how much money you will save. Have fun, enjoy your picnics on the road and Beat the Man.
