Cheap Eats: Part 2
This is the second post of the cheap east series covering the topic of how to find cheap places to eat through tips from this blog post or printable coupons. This post will focus on the following options that includes;
- Daily Deals
- Places you never thought of
I know most people associate coupons with crazy ladies that are addicted to cutting coupons and show up on reality tv shows. But it’s important to note that it’s not a bad thing to whip out a coupon here and there especially when its going to save you some money. A great website to check out is BeFrugal.com where you can sign up and then print off coupons for restaurants. Another great tip is to sign up for the newsletters of your favourite chain restaurants where they often send you emails with deals and promotions that you can use at their restaurants.
Websites like Groupon.com are great websites where you can get coupons and savings for chain restaurants as well as local restaurants. Check out these sites often and you can even sign up for their newsletters to make sure you get the most up to date deals.
Places you never thought of
This section was one of the main reasons why I wanted write a post covering this topic. Going to the University of Guelph myself I realized that there was a great restaurant on campus as part of our Hotel and Tourism program. This restaurant is run by students and is part of their curriculum which leads to fairly good meals and really inexpensive prices.
A list of a few great university/college campus restaurants

- University of Guelph-P.J’s
