The Frugal Way to Eat Out: Weekend Links

Frugal way to eat out

When we were getting out of debt our kids were 4,2,and 1 and couldn’t remember ever being in a restaurant.  One day my parents called up and offered to take us out.  I told the children, “We’re going out to eat!”  They started jumping up and down and clapping, chanting, “A picnic, a picnic. We’re going on a picnic.”  And that my friends is the frugal way to go “out” to eat, lol. They were pretty disappointed to end up inside a restaurant.

Here are some fun links for you for weekend reading, inspired by a family bonding picnic. Click the photos to go to the source and read more.

    Heather, I know what you mean. Darren and I get out a couple of times a month, but we go alone for a date. Taking the kids makes the bill crazy high, so we look for fun ways to treat them otherwise.

    I so enjoy ideas of how to use mason jars. Have used one for a picnic by dressing it up like a bumble bee and putting our plastic ware in it. The jar was also used to hold the wayward table cloth down when the wind came up! I usually don’t comment on blogs, but just had to here. We are struggling to get out of debt before retirement and look for frugal ways to save money. Thanks for the links you shared!

    Barb, the bee jar sounds adorable! What a great idea. I’m so proud of you for working towards getting out of debt. It’s hard work but so worth it.
