I've been meaning to do a recession-related post. The Big R has kept me from eating out too much, especially with the school year winding down and me living off of what I've saved for the summer. So how can I still manage to eat out? Well first, avoid the really expensive places like the plague. As for the rest, here's a handy article I found on Yahoo! that gives some helpful tips on stretching your dollar when you eat out. Some ideas (ten in all):
- Avoid the entrée and just get appetizers (not an appetizer, but appetizers);
- Skip on the alcohol / coffee / dessert, or just have that at home;
- Fill out a feedback card - if you leave contact info, they might send you coupons!
