If you know us at all, you know that we are HUGE fans of Chick Fil A! However, as “quick- service” restaurants go, Chick Fil A is not the most money efficient option out there.
When we feel the need to feed our family addiction, we let the kids share a meal. Usually the kids are filled up. Sometimes, they start in on mine or their daddy’s meal. If they are still super hungry, they can grab a snack when they get home.
Of course, meal sharing goes outside of just Chick Fil A. We apply this principle to other restaurants as well. My husband and I will sometimes share a meal as well.
Other tips for eating out:
1. Take drinks for the kids with you or just get water.
2. Look for coupons, in store specials, etc. You can follow a lot of restaurants on Facebook and keep up with their special offers.
3. Choose restaurants that don’t require tipping.
Oh… And here’s a Chick Fil A tip you may not know…you can trade in your un-opened kids meal toy for Ice-Cream!
