Dining Out on a Budget
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Are you tired of cooking? Are you tired of doing the dishes? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to eat out at a restaurant? But you are on a limited budget. How can you afford to eat out? Read the following tips for dining out on a budget.
 
2     First, look for coupons. Newspapers often have coupons for restaurants. Sometimes they even come in the mail. Libraries, grocery stores, and hotels often have brochures for tourists. These are often filled with discounts restaurants give in order to attract visitors.
 
3     The discounts may be for a certain amount off your entire bill. They may be for a reduced price on a certain entrée. Or they may be a "buy one, get one free" coupon. You can share the coupon with a friend. You can split the cost of one meal, but you will still get two meals. Coupons are a good way to save money when you want to dine out.
