eat out cheap

Lydia and I love to eat out. And, we love to be cheap. But... if you're reading this, you probably already knew that. So, whenever we find something good and cheap to eat, we like to share. Check out's eBay Store. Here, you can bid on gift certificates for 50% off your meal or (even better) pennies on the dollar $25 certificates. Of course, there are sometimes restrictions, but the deals far outweigh them!! (Sorry, North Dakota... no participating restaurants yet.) If you're traveling, this is a great way to get a great meal out for next to nothing. We're taking several trips over the next few months, and I'm planning on getting gift certificates for them. Plus... there are new ones posted all the time, so as long as you can find an internet connection and a printer, you can purchase and print them out whenever and wherever!

Tip: on the ebay store homepage, instead of clicking on a state, type your city name in the search box. If you get too many spurious results that way, try again, but this time uncheck "in titles & descriptions." I noticed that if you enter "Los Angeles" with the box checked, you get some restaurants in other cities that have chefs from Los Angeles, etc.
