I just booked our family summer vacation to Manasquan and can’t wait to relax and enjoy the NJ beach!! To minimize the financial damage this vacation is going to cost my family we will need to be smart about our meals. No more just running up to Gee Gee’s from the beach for our lunch, snacks & drinks. We will definitely need to invest in some type of lunch/snack cooler to make it more convenient too. I will have to remember to save a few plastic grocery bags to bring on the beach to hold our trash from the day. That way we will keep our beaches clean and we will be reusing a plastic bag. I guess you could say this is an environmentally correct and budget friendly vacation!
