Our trip to San Francisco was pretty expensive. In order to save a little on our meals I ordered Restaurant.com gift certificates online before we left. I knew that we would be walking everywhere since we weren't getting a rental car and so I got all of them within a 10 minute walk. This was really easy since we were staying in Fisherman's Wharf and there are a TON of restaurants around the area and people walk EVERYWHERE. We were able to eat at a really nice restaurant that we wouldn't have been able to afford without the certificate. Another restaurant we ate at was in the Hyatt across the street from our hotel and it was so good that we ended up going back there a second (unfortunately without a certificate). The next time you take a vacation across the country or city near your own, you should check out Restaurant.com to help save some money!
Even better, you can get $25 gift certificates for as little as $2 a piece!!! They are currently 80% off if you type in the code SUMMER during check out!

Groupon is having a Deal for the Houston Chronicle.
It's the Newspaper for 52 weeks for $52! That's half off the normal stand price!! Another way to cut back on the cost of getting your weekly coupons, delivered to your door!!

I LOVE San Francisco!
We went on vacation this past week to San Francisco and I fell in love. I have been born and raised in Texas and I never thought I would ever find a place that I could live other than the sweet, southern-hospitality state of Texas, but...I think I found it!
I have so much to write about this wonderful city.
To leave you off with one feature that I loved so much about San Francisco was their environmental consciousness. They were very much focused on reducing our carbon footprint in this world which I absolutely love/respect. Their Recology program is one that should be spread Nationwide.
Even our Hotel had bins at the Continental Breakfast that said,
"Recycle", "Compost", and "Landfill".
It really drives home the fact that what we throw in the trash will be sitting in a landfill.
More on this amazing trip to come with travel details!!
Can't wait to share!
