TACO TUESDAY—SAVE MONEY EATING OUT—
Eating out is rare these days with food costs rising, utility costs soaring and buying one soda costing as much as one beer used to cost. While going out to eat is usually a relaxing experience, you need to to keep eating out costs down. There are ways to cut down on your average restaurant bill.
SAVE MONEY WHEN EATING OUT AT RESTAURANTS:
1. Do not order any alcohol. When in a group, drinking one drink usually adds up to drinking two or three drinks, which really adds up to an excessively large restaurant tab.
2. Ask for water. With drink prices going up; at least 3 dollars for one glass of soda, or iced tea is ridiculous. Bars and restaurants fill the glass with ice first, and then pour in a drink—which is only about half of the actual glass, you are paying three bucks for sugar water.
3. Eat the bread and salad offered. Then eat a small amount of your entrée. Tomorrow’s dinner is already made for you!
4. Do not order any appetizers, or dessert. While the price of appetizers or dessert may seem relatively small, when added onto the bill, the total suddenly skyrockets.
5. Stay away from expensive restaurants. You are paying for great service, and many times not better food than you can make at home.
6. Try that corner bar or restaurant. Many times the food is incredibly good at corner bars, or local eateries. Usually they offer specials, as in Buffalo, New York which is well known for their world famous chicken wings and fish fries!
7. Use coupons and pay with cash!
8. Skip chain restaurants. Chains like Applebees, Ruby Tuesdays serve pre-prepared, overly salted, overly spicy foods that really do not taste like much of anything.
9. Do not eat at fast food places. Trust me, when I say this—the food is junk!!You will be famished a few hours later. The food prices are currently UNREAL at McDonald’s and Burger King.
10. Eat out once a week. While it’s awesome to have someone else do all of the work for you, it adds up fast. Make more meals at home. You will be healthier, happier, and more satisfied. And you will have more money in your pocket! Momzinga.com

I felt like I was reading a seriously trippy take on The Wizard of Oz, that was not funny, was not interesting, was not inspirational and was not well written. Each …
