Website Spotlight: Trip on a Budget

So this is not just one website that I am highlighting, but several....

 As you may remember, J and I are going to the Museum of Science and Industry this weekend to see Jim Henson's Fantastic World. I was on the lookout for coupons as admission is $15 (plus $5 to see Jim Henson) and parking is $18. I searched for coupons and found the Chicago Guide to Special Values from the Chicago Office of Tourism. You select your desired museum, and voila, coupons. We will be able to save $2 per ticket.

If your drive requires a refueling, you may want to check out Every day people report in on the current gas prices around the United States and Canada. This will help you find the cheapest gallon without driving all over town. (As suggested by R.)

If shopping and dining are more up your alley, try RetailMeNot. They offer printable coupons by location or type. In addition, there are also online coupons for when you're back home. (Again from R.)

Red Gym, Madison WI

And, not a discount, but you can't miss the good down-home American attractions around the country from Roadside America. These aren't your normal buildings and statues, but World's Largest and Smiley Face Water Towers. (From, guess who...R!)

P.S. I think I need to travel more with R!

P.P.S. Did you notice the red theme? hehe :)
