Save Money On Dining Out By Drinking Water

Eating out can be fun but it can also wreck your budget. When you add in the cost of drinks which may start at around $3 you are looking at your bill just creeping up. You can usually get water from your server at no additional charge, unless you ask for bottled water or sparkling water.

While it may seem like $3 is not a lot to save, if you eat out twice a week that ends up being $24 for the month, not including taxes and tips.

If you drink water with your (already expensive) meal you can save a little money and we all know that every cent counts!

  1. This is wise advice but one thing that most people forget is how this impacts tipping. If you bought a soft drink for $3 and tip 20%, chances are you’d leave $0.60 tip associated with that drink. If you get water, you should still leave that $0.60 on top of whatever you leave anyways, simply because the server still has to go through the same work to get and fill your water as he/she does with a paid-for beverage.
