Order from the kids menu

AnnieChance

If you still want to go out to eat but you don't want to blow your cash, why not try ordering from the kids menu? The portion is smaller, which is great if you're looking to watch your waistline, and it's much cheaper than what's on the main menu.

Yes! I totally do this! I think Ikea's kid serving of mac & cheese is $1 as opposed to $5 for the adult. The kid serving was pretty big in my opinion.

Yeah I hate when there are age limits.

I think this is a good idea, but many times the establishment have age limits on the kids menu.
