Coupons: They’re everywhere! Free coupons in local circulars, gift certificates you can buy at a discount, and frequent dinner clubs are all ways to eat cheap.
- Water: Do you realize how much a drink costs at a restaurant? It’s about the same as 2 2-liters from Wal-Mart. Skip it, drink water and save your money
- Look around you: If a bunch of other diners are all getting the same thing, it probably tastes good and is a good deal
- Share: Do you really need all that food? Split with a dining partner or take home the leftovers to have for lunch the next day.
- Skip the appetizer or desert: Do you really need all that food? (Hey, that sounds familiar!) Enjoy your entrée by not getting filled up and charged for any extras.
