Pack snack bars to tide you over

Looking to save money and possibly your waistline? Pack a few snack/cereal bars to hold you over between meals. This is a strategy that works for Fodor’s member tahl:

“Pack a box of individually-wrapped breakfast bars (the kind of thing you buy in the cereal aisle of the grocery store). Very handy to get something (inexpensive!) in your stomach before you head out for the day, especially if you don’t plan to eat breakfast in your hotel. And you’ll eat them up during the trip, leaving that suitcase space for souvenirs.”
