Save on Dining Out
Tips on saving money when going out to eat
Did you know 44% of couples in America plan on eating out on Valentine’s Day according to the New York Restaurant Survey conducted in 2012. Dining out is like a gift we give ourselves and our loved ones and it doesn’t have to be expensive if you choose the right places and bring your AAA card along for the ride. Here are even more with these tips:
- Make an appetizer your meal. Appetizer portions are often very generous, and today’s menus have a wide variety of creative choices. Better yet, if the restaurant offers free starters, fill up on those.
- Share an entree. In most cases, eating half of a main course will still allow you to leave the restaurant feeling satisfied with half the calories. Some restaurants also offer small plates at a fraction of the price.
- Skip drinks and dessert. These small items usually have proportionally high price tags.
- Go out for dessert only. Have dinner at home and then go out for a sweet treat.
