The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Fish Tacos in San Diego Edition

I’ve been in San Diego for three days now. I have an enormous love for fish tacos, but the ones in Iowa are substandard to say the least. Now that I’m out here, I find myself gorging on them. If you live in San Diego, please, I beg of you, recommend some more places for me to try fish tacos! Now, onto personal finance news.

Forget About The Latte Factor I used to think that the big key to saving money was to cut down on incidentals. Now I’m not so sure – and this blogger seems to feel much the same way. (@ consumerism commentary)

5 Wealth Lessons From 20 Percent of a Millionaire Being rich has a lot to do with personal development, and this post spells it all out quite well. (@ steve pavlina)

10 Ways To Cut Your Restaurant Bill Big Time I even do a lot of these when I’m traveling. More than once, I’ve packed a couple Tupperware containers with me, eaten out alone (’tis the life sometimes when traveling), then taken the leftovers back to the hotel room, packed them in the Tupperware, put the Tupperware in the sink, then cover it with ice. Mmm… cold pizza for breakfast that isn’t scary for having set out all night. (@ money smart life)

    Rubio’s is the place to get fish tacos in SoCal.

  3. Glad to hear someone else has done the old “ice the leftovers” trick when travelling! My wife always thinks I’m crazy and that I’m going to get food poisoning when I try this on the road.

    Having lived in San Diego and now living in Kansas City, I definitely concur that you can’t get good fish tacos outside of SD. That being said, as a previous poster said, Rubio’s is the gold standard. Please FedEx me a Pesky Combo as payment for my advice… :)

    You write “I used to think that the big key to saving money was to cut down on incidentals. Now I’m not so sure – ” and I agree, sort of. Cutting down on incidentals is not THE big key but is is A key to saving money.

    It’s part of an overall attitude in which you should conside how your money is spent. I will celebrate my 25th anniversary this year. In that time our annual income has never been over $70k and we’ve lived comfortably, got one kid in college (can’t qualify for aid so I’m paying from savings) and have paid cash for every new auto since 1980 yet our combined net worth is about $15k away from $1 million. Part of our attitude is clipping coupons, setting limits for spending including Christmas and birthdays, and sticking to a minimal allowance for spending cash during the week. Hey, worked for us.

    I was born and raised in San Diego, but now reside in Philly where I can’t get a decent fish taco to save my life. My advice to you is, Rubio’s is good, but you MUST go to Point Loma Seafood for their fish tacos. They are absolutely delicious, and the way they double wrap them, two tacos really means you get four! You can sit outside and gaze at the San Diego bay while you eat. Oh, I’m so jellycakes right now!
