100daysrestEating at home isn’t always an option. Sometimes you are just too busy or tired to even think about turning the oven on. However, you can still save money while eating out. Look for inexpensive, local options while eating out. Chain restaurants are often more expensive and the food isn’t as good. Local restaurants often use local ingredients, make everything by hand, and have more local flair.

Whenever possible, use coupons to save even more money. Buying an Entertainment book—a book full of coupons for local restaurants and businesses—is a good investment if you go out to eat a lot. It’s full of coupons for 20% off your total bill, buy one meal get one free, and kids eat free coupons. You can also frequent restaurants that use punch cards or customer reward cards. This will keep track of each visit, and after a certain number of visits you get a free or discounted meal.  If you know you want to eat out this week check Groupon or Living Social for discount vouchers.

This makes meals out more enjoyable—you get to eat at a yummy restaurant while saving money, which keeps you from feeling guilty about treating yourself. Even during the holiday season, you need to take care of yourself with a good meal.

Plus, you could put the money you save aside into a Christmas fund.
