When eating at restaurants, there are several great ways to save money on the bill and keep the dining out budget in check. See this list of Happy Hour Deals and Special Promotions.
I have always loved taking advantage of Kid Eat Free promotions to save money at restaurants. But as my kids have “aged” out of most of these, I am looking for new ways to save. Taking advantage of Happy Hour Specials is another great way to save on your bill. And it’s not just for drinks and alcohol. Check out the appetizer options too.
