It has been eight months since I checked in with you all and there have been lots of developments in my life. Perhaps the biggest development is that I took a major paycut in my day job and so I REALLY needed to scale back on my spending. One of the areas where I have had to scale back significantly is taking my nieces and nephews out to eat. It's kind of our "thing." But Aunt Dee Dee has been short on cash lately. So in order to continue to bond with my niece and nephew AND keep our tradition alive, I have searched long and hard to find ways to save money on eating out with the little dumplings. So divas, here's what I found:
This website offers a list of restaurants (including popular chain restaurants) that offer free meals for kids each day of the week.
Coupondivas.com is not just for great deals on brands, but it also includes information on where to take your kids to eat for free.
Mykidseatfree.com is perhaps the most comprehensive website focused on providing families with information on where kids eat free. You can search for deals by state and city, and the site also offers details on the terms and conditions for each restaurant's kids-eat-free offer.
Finally, I recently discovered a "free" deal for grown-ups at one of my favorite chain restaurants, Maggianos. At Maggianos, if you order from the "classic pastas" portion of the menu, you can take home another classic pasta dish home with you for free! So if there is a Maggiano's near you, I urge you to try it. It is totally worth it!
So divas, please check it out and let me know if you find out about any other deals on eats for the family. And ladies, look forward to more monthly blog entries to help you live the diva lifestyle that you deserve!
XOXO~ Miss Diva
