Family time together used to consist of having a nice dinner out on the weekends at a special place, or ordering a pizza feast and watching a movie. Unfortunately, as more people face difficult times in this economic downturn, families are frequenting restaurants less and less. By the time you order an appetizer, drinks, an entire’, and dessert for a family of four, you have spent close to $100. That is a week’s worth of groceries for my family of five.
However, here is the thing; my grocery bill for a family of 5 never actually costs me $100, more like $35-50. In addition, those high restaurant bills are not something I pay either. I am an avid coupon user on just about everything, from groceries and beauty aids, to prescriptions and diapers. I never pay full price for anything at any merchant, including restaurants.
With the Internet being such an accessible way to research and print off multiple coupons and vouchers, no consumer should have to pay full price at a famous chain such as Outback or the Olive Garden (my personal favorite), or some of your local hangouts in your area. If you are paying full menu price at your favorite places, you can easily change that.
You will be able to enjoy quality family time once again without breaking your budget. I have done some research for you to enable you to save as much money as I do. Simply because I know how it is to want to treat yourself and I love helping people like me save money. You can go websites such as and find a plethora of discounts.
At this particular website, you will have access to several vouchers coupons. You can purchase gift cards and save at least 65% off if not more. For example, you will pay $40 for a $100 gift card. That is less than the cost of two people eating out!
You can also join a Dinner-of-the-Month club and for a mere $10 a month receives a $25 gift card to the restaurant of your choice. Memberships are usually for 3, 6, and 12-month intervals, and the savings are conveniently to your in-box monthly for you to print and go.
You can find the best specials online and with such ease. All you have to do is type in the name of the restaurant you want to dine at, along with the words vouchers coupons and the computer does the rest of the work for you. You will be led to websites that offer the best specials for you and then print off your savings right there at your computer.
Maybe you are more of a “clip and go” person, so was I, however, statistical research shows that voucher coupons are usually of higher discounts compared to those that you will find in “cut-out” magazine or newspaper coupons. I do not know about you, but that is enough of an incentive for me.
In addition, if you are like me, no meal is complete without a yummy dessert. I have to watch my waistline as much as my budget, so I love finding places that offer low calorie desserts. This way I am able to stay on a calorie budget but still feel like I am indulging.
Many restaurants offer their full menus online, so check and see what your restaurant has to offer if you are in need of low-calorie desserts to finish off that delicious and wallet friendly entree.
Overall, it is so much fun to be able to sit back and relax at a restaurant with my family and not have to worry about whether or not I am breaking our bank. Family night can be enjoyable again for you too. Go online, look up vouchers coupons, and start saving today.
