Eat In, Eat Out
Vacation rentals and "suite" hotels and motels that come with kitchens can cut your daily food bills substantially. Either look for hotels with "free" breakfasts or eat breakfasts in your room. Figure on takeout or picnic lunches where feasible. Buy beverages from a supermarket rather than piling up a big bill in a hotel or restaurant. At all costs, avoid your hotel's price-gouging minibar.
