My Frugal $ense Pick for December

The new tips are up on's Frugal $ense contest. This month Catherine Lowe of Grass Valley submitted my favorite. It's a slight twist on Stretching One Meal Into Two that I mentioned that I liked in a previous post. It's a good alternative if you don't have a buy-one-entree-get-one-free coupon.

This is a good idea at restaurants that serve large entrees that can easily feed two people. Usually if you order an entree, you can get a side salad for a reduced price (if it doesn't already come with one). Then add one more item (i.e. another side side, soup, or appetizer). It will be less than another entree but be plenty for two people.

Michael and I haven't tried this entree sharing tip yet. However, for a little savings, we have shared a side salad if it costs additional to get one with our meals.

If you like Catherine's tip too, vote "7" for her so it will increase her chances of winning. If she does win, we'll get to learn more similar tips from her when Bankrate does the interview article with her.
