kubernetes env on GCP VM's | daily usage

I am running my lab kubernetes env on GCP VM's.
After daily module or exercise i want to stop vm so that i dont get charged.But i am not sure what will be impact to running cluster, do i have to do the setup again if i stop vm's.
Any efficient strategy around same ? so only during lab work machines are woking and billing vs keeping over night them ON and come next day for lab?

    Hi @shrikiec,

    You can safely STOP the GCE instances overnight and START them the next day. No additional steps need to be taken for the cluster to re-connect upon restart. This will significantly lower your instance costs.
