I can be as needy as the next guy. But if I don't see it I don't need
it. Out of site out of mind.
I agree on everything except for the appetizers. At some restaurants, I've
found that some appetizers are better than the main dish. Plus it's a bit
easier to be adventurous with choosing an unfamiliar appetizer because they
usually cost less than main dishes. I definitely wouldn't recommend it
every time though.I definitely agree with other commenters about
eating out to lunch. That can get so expensive.
How about going out to lunch at work every day? About 95% of the time I bring a
lunch. Meanwhile many go out almost every day and it costs them $6-$12 a day.
That is an expensive habit!!!Make a sandwich or bring some leftovers
instead of throwing them out when they go bad.
I guess I am smarter, or at least cheaper, than I thought I was. I don't

Good list, but I would add an 11th item: any kinds of drinks in restaurants.
And most of them are terrible for your health. If you really need energy from
sugar at a meal, just ask for plain water and add 18 packets of sugar to it. No
charge, and you get the equivalent of a soft drink. But be sure to ask for
"plain water," or you might get $5 imported mineral water in a souvenir
