My frugal tip this week helps keep the bill down when dining out. Have you noticed that portion sizes are getting out of control at restaurants? I think you could feed a small country with some of the dishes these days. However, they are often the perfect size for sharing. Often time restaurants will even split it for you onto two separate plates.
To be honest, the hubby and I don’t often like the same dish so this doesn’t always work for us. Plus he has a nut allergy and I tend to like my food nut laden. Still when the food is ala carte, we often split a salad (with the yummy nuts on the side). Of course, even if you don’t want to share your meal, it is always thrifty to ask for the doggie bag and have leftovers for tomorrow.
