Affording My Luxuries

April 22nd, 2008 at 03:50 pm

I like to go to restaurants with friend and enjoy a leisurely meal. Lots of fun and laughter.

I also go out once a week into the community with my students. Its called Community Based Instruction. We are out during lunch so we eat in restaurants. The purpose is to work on educational skills(money, menus, map reading, ect), behavior and social skills. Eating at McDonald, Burger King, ect is okay but they need a wider variety to acquire more skills.

Thanks to bloggers here I have learned about Restaurant.com and slickdeals.net. Combining the two have made it affordable to eat in nicer places and practice skills in a different setting. Some of my students are economically challenged (thats PC for very low income). Its great having the opportunity to introduce them to finer dining than fast food. Ordering from a menu, eating a meal in courses, tipping, etc. are important social skills for adulthood.

So, thanks to the posters on this board for sharing your day-to-day (moneysaving) spending adventures.

    How do you combine SD and Restaurant.com to save $$$?

    I use slickdeals.net to get coupon codes to lower the cost of Restaurant.com. Yesterday, I used the code to get the $25 certificate for $4. Without the code, it would have been $25 for $10.

    Thanks, I didn't know SD had coupon codes for Resturaunts.com.
