Our family enjoys eating out.  It is a big part of our entertainment and family time.  A couple years ago we realized we were paying over $2 each for soft drinks which equaled over $10 for drinks at each restaurant meal.

In an effort to be healthier and to save money, we started ordering ice water when we went out to eat.  At most restaurants, if desired, you can add a slice of lemon, lime or even orange for some flavor and they serve it for FREE.

The savings can be substantial.  At two visits a week saving $20 per week at the end of the year we racked up savings of $1,040!  Consider giving water a try the next time you eat out for you health and your wallet.

Would you consider switching to water when dining out?  Please comment.
