We decided that soft drinks and french fries offered the least nutrition for the price so now we skip the french fries and sring water.

We order water over pop. Saves about 1.50 -2.00 per person. We try to order specials and my dd 10 yr orders soup alot instead of large meal she wont finish. I also try to remember which places hav kids eat free on which nights. Otherwise we just dont go out as much and keep frozen pizza at home to save on delivery which is 4x what sams club pizzas are.

We often like to go out to breakfast on the weekends. Have recently decided that the breakfast plates are too large. So we split a breakfast. Never go home hungry and do not get that "can't move for hours" feeling.
