From products to services, it seems there is no escaping rising costs.

Gas in our state is nearing $4, groceries are through the roof, and the only way to keep up with it all is to cut back on other things like.. dining out.

I don't know about you, but I eat out quite a bit. I've tried scaling it back over the last few years, with some success, but I can't beat what a meal out can save me in both time and energy.

An article I came across on yahoo.com offered a few suggestions so that you can still enjoy dining out, without breaking the bank. They offered 10 tips, in my story I gave you these five;

1. Have a snack

2. Try Appetizer dining

3. Take advantage of discount programs

4. Avoid major holidays

5. Change the time you dine

Follow this link below to find out the last 5 along with additional information.

If you have ways you're saving big, I'd love to hear about it. Just email me your story and how you're saving money, without giving up your favorite activities.

I hope you find these tips for dining out helpful.
