One of the biggest ways to save money in a down economy is to limit the amount of times you go out to eat every month. While for most people this seems like a no brainer, you would be surprised just how much the average person spends a month on dining out.
I happened to stumble upon this penny pinching product the other day while I was surfing the web for penny pinching ideas for this post. The book is only $10 and it includes a shit ton of great ideas for saving yourself some money while eating out. They also throw in some other tips for around the house.
One of the best tips in the book I found was that dirty dishes cause more debt. Sounds wierd right? Well stop and think about it for a bit, if you have a pile full of dirty dishes hanging out in your sink, you're more then likely to say screw it and just go out to grab some fast food.
I highly recommend this penny pinching book to help you save some money in this crap economy. Its only $10 so won't stress your budget too much and in the end may end up saving money for you. Check out the Dining On A Dime book here.
