A Money-Saving Tip for Ordering at a Restaurant

money-dining-out_300Though cooking your own meals is a surefire way to save money on food, there are still ways to cut back on expenses when you do have the occasional meal out.

When you look at a restaurant’s menu, keep your focus in the middle of the dish list, rather than the top or the bottom. It’s there you’ll find the best-priced options.

As a general rule, avoid anything printed in large letters, in bright or bold colors, or in a box. These item are usually not bargains.

    Thank you for this tip! I usually read a menu from top to bottom. Now I’ll make sure to take a look at the middle portion first!

    In this age of huge portions, many times an appetizer can substitute for an entree. If that’s not enough, add a soup or salad. Some like the large portions for a second meal at home, but when traveling that is not practical. My husband and I are not puny eaters, but on the road, sharing an appetizer and an entree is usually plenty for us.
