Eating out can be fun but it can also wreck your budget. When you add in the cost of drinks which may start at around $3 you are looking at your bill just creeping up. You can usually get water from your server at no additional charge, unless you ask for bottled water or sparkling water.

While it may seem like $3 is not a lot to save, if you eat out twice a week that ends up being $24 for the month, not including taxes and tips.

If you drink water with your (already expensive) meal you can save a little money and we all know that every cent counts!
