It costs me around $650 to see my husband. I am in Ohio and he is in Florida. I can only afford to go see him about 3-4 times a year and that sucks.

This past weekend, my visit cost me more than I want to spend evey weekend!! LOL And I told him I couldn't afford to do it every weekend. But, I'm already trying to save for his weekend. UGH! Gas was $40 plus another $20 when I got back so I could have gas for he week!! LOL Food for me and my friend and her 2 kids that came with us was about $20-$30. I brought $10 in quarters. Cloths just for visits (cause none of my clothes seem to meet this approval) - $40. Not to mention the money I have to spend on an oil change every month just to travel 400miles every weekend. AHHH.

I spend about $50-$60 on gas & he usually spends less than $20 on food & drinks during the visit. I've only gotten a room (only $150) once for a weekend visit but he treated. About half the time he pays for gas. I budget about $250 for visits each month.

It cost me about $500 to visit my husband. He's on Ohio and I'm in Iowa. I can find a plane ticket for about $250 and a rental car for about $150 spending money and gas for about $100. Lucky for me, my best friend lives in Ohio, about 50 min. from the prison, so I stay with her.
