I spend whatever it takes to get to spend whatever time I can with my other half.

My husband is about 3 1/2 to 4 hrs away I spend about 30 in gas and 15 at visit if i go by my self if my kids go thats another story cuz they want everything in the vending machine. I try to go every week if i can depending on my work schedule.
The one weekend i went with the kids i spent:
$72 for hotel
$40 for gas(cuz i went to hotel and the mall)
$80 food (for the weekend including visit)
So that was alittle over $200, so now im just trying to go 1 day a week which saves me money.

I spend less than $100 per visit and that is mostly gas. It takes a little over a full tank for the roundtrip (almost 4 hrs ea. way). I only go for 1 day so I travel home and back the same day. I usually take $20-$30 for the visit but I don't eat food just a drink and a snack. He rarely uses more than $10-12 on a visit so I either use the remainder to eat after visit or roll it over to the next. We have a set schedule and when he misses me too much and wants a visit outside the schedule, he pays.
