The Buck-Budgeting Blondes Take on Nashville


Hey money savers. K & A are back again, and this time we’re giving you the 411 on Nashvegas. Whether you’ve been to Nashville before or are looking to explore the city for the first time, we have some tips to make your experience the best it can be!

To start, let’s find you a place to stay. You will want to be close enough to the action without paying an arm and a leg for a hotel on the downtown strip. A great site to find a place to settle in for the weekend is Airbnb, which will feel like a home away from home and also is cost-friendly. You can enjoy the perks of a kitchen, no worries of noisy hotel neighbors and your very own personal space.

Next, it’s time to get you out on the town. Broadway is the best strip in all of Nashville and you won’t want to miss what it has to offer. Whether you’re looking for some affordable BBQ or wanting to hear free live music, any bar you hop into will have this and more!

Now it’s time to recover from your night out and get back to exploring again. A perfect energy starter is Monell’s, a family owned restaurant in Germantown. You sit at a large table and get to know the other diners while feasting on a $16 all-you-can-eat Southern comfort food brunch. Their fried chicken is absolutely to die for and you don’t want to pass it up!

Lastly, if you get the niche to participate in a little touristy activity, hop over to the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum to check out where country music started. You can snag a ticket for under $25 and also get discounts through AAA or military.

You now have the tips on making your Nashville vacation a cost-saving, unforgettable trip. Enjoy your stay in Nashville and remember to keep drinking water ;).

Until next time,

Hey money savers. K & A here-

We wanted to introduce you to the young women behind the CME Money Tips blog. To give you a little background info, we  graduated from college and are starting our careers at CME in the Member Communications Department. We have a great grasp of knowledge of the financial industry and love everything that marketing entails.

We are just two young women living in the city who love to have fun, work hard, and enjoy all the great restaurants, shopping and entertainment that Columbus has to offer. While we may have expensive taste when it comes to fashion, food and our choice of drink, we also look for opportunities to save a pretty penny. Whether it’s food delivery savings, store sales, or travel discounts, there’s never a savings program we won’t sign up for.

Follow along with our journey here at CME and we’ll teach you a trick or two on the best deals and how to find them. Along with some financial tips such as avoiding debt, saving for retirement early and much, much more!

Until next time,

K & A
