Order Water at Restaurants to Save Money

Order Water!

This tip was shared by member steelmagnoliatn in our How Do You Save? group.

On the rare times we do get to go out, unless one of us is celebrating something with a cocktail, we usually order water to save on the out to eat expenses. It's healthier by far and doesn't cost you a thing in most restaurants! We are actually beginning to teach our kids to do the same thing. Many places are beginning to charge on refills of other drinks, even for children!

We do this all the time because my husband claims restaurant soda is a giant ripoff.

Ooh, this is a must. I get so annoyed every time we go out to dinner & my husband orders a $2 glass of instant iced "tea."

That's a great tip! I suspect FitSugar would approve too!

i almost always order water, unless i want a glass of booze during dinner. recently, i've started drinking water for more of my meals at home too, which i'm finding is saving me some money too! i live alone, so buying large containers of juice, etc., isn't really economical for me, since i can't drink it all before it goes bad. and cutting down soda consumption makes my wallet (and my body) happy.
