Budgeting for East Coast Trip

As you have noticed on the side bar I’ve set a savings goal for my East Coast trip this summer. Usually, when I travel I have an approximate idea of how much I would spend. A little less/more doesn’t really matter. However, because of the unexpected large increase in expense for my summer trip with friends, I decided to come up with a budget. I’m going to try to save enough for it before then. I’m thinking from extra shifts with the PT job, Pay per post, etc.

I’m budgeting $100 a day for food, car rental, accommodations, and miscellaneous. We will be there for 4 days (Wish we could do longer, but no one has vacation). I’m aiming to have $400 in cash before the trip.
