Eating Out

meat platter


Frugal people do not eat out very much.  It just costs too much money.

Do not overeat just because someone puts a large plate of food in front of you.  Ask for a container and take half of it home.  You may also be able to order one meal and split it with you spouse or your children.

When you do eat out, remember not to abandon your goals of thrift and saving money just because you don't eat out often.
