Frugal Friday

Posted on: April 4, 2008

Frugal Friday

So this is my first Frugal Friday…and I am really looking forward to checking out some of the others.My first Frugal Friday suggestion deals with saving money when you dine out. In my family we rarely dine out, because for one we have a 4 year and a 13 month old…but also because it’s just not in our budget; I can think of better things to do with that money. But as my birthday is Monday and Hubby has been talking about to taking me out to dinner since I don’t want him to buy me a gift. Now let me first say that although we don’t dine out regularly, there is nothing I like better than eating at a restaurant and trying new foods in a fun environment. So this is one of the best gifts he could give me (he is also giving me tomorrow to spend as a girls day out with some friends).

Being the frugal person that I am and always looking to save a buck we will be visiting Restaurant.com to buy discounted gift certificates to some local restaurants. This is a great way to try some of the local flavor and enjoy the atmosphere of some great local restaurants. It has been my experience that locally owned and operated restaurants normally serve the freshest and best tasting food along with having the best service. You can get $25 gift certificates for just $10 or sign up for the Restaurant of the Month club and save even more! This is a great opportunity to enjoy something I love and spend frugally. By eating at a local restaurant, I get delicious food with great service and an affordable price…not to mention some much needed, well deserved alone time with Hubby. What more can a person ask for?

I like restaurant.com! I was happy to find a restaurant that we’ve been wanting to try is listed there. BTW, I think if you put in the code DINING, you get 50% off!
Not only that, but do you do eBates? If you do, go to restaurant.com via that site. You will earn 15% back!

And have a very, very happy birthday!
