Go Out to Eat
Yes, that’s right. Even if you are broke, it doesn’t mean that you have to cut all the fun from your life completely. Going out to eat with your friends or your significant other doesn’t have to be pricey if you follow these tips:
- instead of dinner, go out for breakfast or lunch. You will still enjoy the experience but save a huge chunk of money this way;
- if you are going out for dinner, share a meal with your friend. Portions in many restaurants have become huge and one meal is usually plenty for two and sometimes even three people;
- skip drinks (and I don’t only mean alcoholic), order water instead. There is no need to pay $2-$3 for a glass of coke, half of which is filled with ice, when you can get a litter of it for a $1 at a grocery store. The same goes for juices. Drinks at restaurants are always overpriced, so go with water to save money. Besides, plain water is really good for you;
- don’t forget to browse the internet for restaurant coupons and specials before you go.
