  • Drink water

Do you know how much water cost at restaurants? Some restaurants charge triple the prices on the market. You can save money by buying a bottle from a nearby shop before ordering your food.

  • Eat at home

If you don’t have a car, take public transport to the restaurant and take your order. It is much cheaper than paying a delivery fee.

  • Skip out on desserts and appetizers

If you are very hungry, you can buy a snack on your way to the restaurant because it will take 15- 20 minutes for your food to be ready. Similarly, you can buy an ice cream on your home which is very cheaper than a scoop at the restaurant.

  • Package your leftover

Don’t allow your uneaten food to go waste. Always take your leftover food home and have them for your dinner the following night.
