Eating out on a budget

It isn't uncommon for families to eat out several times a week. And if you work, business lunches are an almost daily routine.

A recently as a generation ago, eating at a restaurant was reserved for special occasions, like an anniversary. Now we eat out to save time or because we don't feel like cooking.

Eating out is a popular recreational activity for a lot of people. It can be fun and relaxing to be waited on for a change.

One way I save at restaurants is to drink water instead of a $2.50 glass of tea or soda. A few clients have given me gift cards to local restaurants. It's a gift a working mom can really appreciate. For more tips on how to save money dining out, visit
