I did my best to keep costs low. I only paid for one meal each day and avoided expensive hotels as best as possible (the most expensive hotel was $80 + tax). I mostly stayed in Choice Hotels properties to take advantage of a sweet promotion: a $50 retail gift card for every two stays. After tonight's stay, I've already earned $150 in gift cards!
The route I am on is a shorter one: on Thursday I finally close on the new house. I have 3 shops for Monday, 4 on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday.
