5 Smart Tips to Save Money When Eating Out
Sometimes dining out can be an expensive affair, but that shouldn’t deter you from going out and enjoy a good meal! We all love eating out every now and then... Even when we don't plant to go for lunch or dinner, no trip to the mall is incomplete without stopping by a fancy restaurant.
We list some genius tips that will help you cut costs the next time you go to eat out... Thank us later!
1. Skip on bottled water
Most pricey restaurants make a killer with bottled water and soda. If you wanna eat out and yet maintain a budget, avoid bottled water because it’s charged more than its retail price. You can just ask for regular water – it’s RO water usually - and save a few bucks.
2. Get happy at Happy Hour
If you believe that Happy Hours is limited only to drinks, then you need to think again. During Happy Hours, some restaurants offer the whole menu at special prices. Visit bakeries late in the evening to get sweet delights at discounted prices – most five star bakeries offer at least 50% off on baked goods, some offer even more!
3. Brunch it
If you’d like to eat once every week, do weekend brunch. It’s a mix of breakfast and lunch food and it’s the cheapest meal of the weekend, but still feels like an indulgence. Avoid going to places that offer buffet – because it will end up costing you a bomb!
4. Get more social
Follow all your favorite restaurants on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter – you never know when a special promotion or a giveaway comes your way! You can also check their websites before heading out, they might come up with some limited promo and events...
