30. Cut Out Alcohol

When some people go on vacation, they imagine sipping cocktails by the pool or ocean side. After all, drinking helps to loosen us up, and lets us party in a way that we normally can’t at home. However, when you are going to a restaurant or any other location that is geared towards tourists, beverages are going to be outrageously expensive, averaging from $10 to $20 per glass. That seriously cuts into your $50 daily budget. If you are trying to be as frugal as possible, it’s best to cut out alcohol completely, or try to find a local shop that sells $1 beers or $5 bottles of wine.
