Food for Thought
Children can be immensely choosy with respect to what they want to eat. Make sure you carry some of their favorites during your travel.

Keeping some cookies or cakes to munch in between meals is also a good idea. Also, remember to include their favorite candies, chocolates and chewing gums to pacify them during your air travel or during one of their temper tantrums.

Keeping some food and goodies will ensure that you do not have to shell out extra money to pay for hunting for their favorites and then buying them at a higher cost in the country/city of your travel.

Play Station
No child feels complete without his toys. So, make sure that you carry one or two of your kids’ favorite toys along when traveling.

This will free you from having to pay too much attention to them and will also allow you to enjoy the vacation.

In fact, you can consider buying each of your children a new game so that the possibility that they would get tired of their toys early is ruled out.

They could also keep rotating their toys among themselves if they get bored. You could also carry a few new puzzle books to keep their brains ticking.

Carrying their favorite toys should save you from buying new ones in the destination you visit. Buying new ones means extra cost of first hunting for toys of their choice in a new city and secondly buying them at a higher cost, as most tourist destination tend to be more expensive and offer lesser or no discounts at all.

What’s on Your Entertainment Menu
Carrying your children’s most cherished DVDs and a small pocket DVD player can save you a lot of inconvenience as well as money. It could also give you the convenience of buying new DVDs in the destination of your visit.

This means that you need not waste money to watch all the latest kid movies in theaters. They can be watched when both of you don't go on a city tour or on a shopping spree.

To Carry or Not to Carry Bulk Items
Whether you should carry bulks such as diapers, books, wipes and eatables depends upon your mode of transportation.

If you are traveling by plane it is better to avoid carrying such items primarily due to the excess baggage cost involved. It will be illogical to pay excess baggage at exorbitant rates and end up increasing the cost of your bulk items by many folds.

On the other hand, if you decide to travel by car, you can always carry them and thus avoid buying them at a higher cost at the destination of your travel. (Cost tends to be more because you will tend to buy them at whatever price that they are available at, rather than going around the city looking for discounts).

Following the above mentioned tips should ensure that you have a pleasant stay with your kids without denting your bank account.
