Saving Money At Restaurants

Lots of times it is nice to go out and have a dinner outside of the house.  Many times this comes with a hefty bill depending on the size of family that you have.  Some people have asked me how can you go out to a restuarant without spending your monthly house payment on your meal?!?!

There are ways of saving while enjoying a nice meal at a restaurant.  There are many restaurants that offer from time to time Kids Eat Free -- restaurants such as Bob Evans and Chili's offer this option.  This is great for a family to take advantage of.  There are also other restaurants such as Chipotle that has a Kids Club where you are able to get additional discounts on kids meals.

How about searching online through Restaurants.com to purchase a gift certificate online for a discount.  Even better yet try searching online through plasticjungle for a gift card at discounted pricing.

Last and of course my all time favorite.  Many restaurants have a Birthday Club that you are able to sign up for and they will send you coupons for your birthday.  There is no doubt that you will be totally spoiled for your birthday not to mention the whole week of your birthday!

Check out some of the great birthday links ~ and be sure to get added to their mailing lists!

As the journey begins....

And so once again the journey begins.  I have thought long and hard about the blogging world for months and months on end.  I have started, stopped, restarted, and stopped all a multitude of times.  Is this something that I really want to do, I ask myself day in and day out.  YES, the final answer is YES!

Starting today I vow to bring you wonderful frugal tips, tricks, and ideas all that hopefully will flow greatly within your daily lifestyles as well as they flow in mine. 

Had it not been for the frugal side of me that I started to encounter almost 5 years ago I would not be where I am at today.  A little kick and a little nudge here and there really allowed for my whole lifestyle to change and become what it is today!
