cassembler - I travel a lot....and do eat out some. Lol - but keeping with budget, I have been known to bring food to the hotel (precooked), have been known to bring a toaster over and a hot plate to the room to cook...
I am on day 5 in a hotel and still haven't eaten out. (May change tonight, since I will be traveling right after work...)
OP - don't compare yourself to others! Do what works for you. It takes courage, it takes strength, but in the end, it's for you, for your family.
Ever tried crock pot cooking while at a hotel?
