In the face of a poor economy, overpriced tickets and unnecessary fees Teri Gault, CEO of the GroceryGame.com, lifestyle and savings expert and frequent flyer who travels over 150,000 miles a year so has tips and tricks to saving money whether you’re traveling on business or with your family. Flying in and out of major cities, renting cars, sleeping in hotels, paying for dinner, Teri has mastered a whole system of getting the most value for your travel dollars, and still without sacrificing comfort.
Here is a sampling of Teri’s frugality:
Engage in conversations with the locals: Chowhound, a popular online food discussion board, is a great resource where locals and tourists can chat and exchange tips of places to go and things to see.
Choose lunch over dinner: Lunch menus are often a lot cheaper than dinner menus and sometimes they serve the same thing. If you have your eye on a really nice restaurant instead of paying twice as much for dinner, choose to eat out for lunch instead.
Save on croissants and orange juice: Pack food, this is especially important when it comes to breakfast. Some hotels offer breakfast which is something you should take advantage of. If your hotel doesn’t provide this perk go for a quick shop at the grocery store and pick up yogurt and cereal for an inexpensive meal. Read the full story

With our crazy busy lives and everyone in a rush: no wonder people are more likely to lose laptops and mobile phones. When a device is lost, the realization hits everyone: we’re really dependent on our mobile electronics.
• Laptop losses regularly total 12,000 per week in the US (Ponemon Institute).
• 25% of all wireless phones are reported lost or stolen every year (Asurion Insurance Service Inc.).
Consumer electronics and laptops are an investment, and are expensive to replace – not to mention that you can’t restore the data they contain, precious family photos, personal contacts and files, sensitive business documents and music libraries.
Technology makes it incredibly easy for anyone to return lost or stolen items online and most people want to help – but without a unique identifying number items are anonymous. But now there is an inexpensive solution from Global Lost and Found (GLF), www.glfound.com , E-Tracker I.D.s for $9.99 which can be purchased directly at GLFs’ website, Tiger Direct stores, http://www.tigerdirect.com , or Fry’s Electronics.
