Eat for 2 at McDonald's for $4.61!!

I met my husband in town for lunch the other day. There is no need to break the bank for a lunch date. I ordered 2 McDoubles, which are larger burgers than a plain cheeseburger (but are about .50 less than the double cheeseburger) for a total of $2.98. We split some fries for $1.39 and then got 2 waters for a total of $4.61.

When we were younger, we would not have done this. We simply would not have been able to afford it! For an even less expensive lunch date, a brown bag PBJ lunch in the car is even less! However, most people order meals for each person which can run about $5.00 or $6.00 each. No need to do that! The truth is, I think my husband would like to do that and when I'm not around, he usually spends more. When I am with him, I usually have a coupon of some kind (no matter where we go to eat) and he tolerates my frugality because he knows it's for the greater good. He will say (with resignation) "What can I get?" or sometimes, he just has me order because I know what he likes and what will fit in with my cheapskate ways. In the long run, he is usually appreciative.

Happy savings!

  1. Ha, my husband would be saying the same thing, lol... only he would never drink water... if he is at Mikkie D's, it is sweet ice tea, lol! I also like the fact that our McDs has printed on each receipt a survey # you can call and get a buy one get one free coupon. That's pretty good savings too :)
