Kids Eat Free!

Yesterday I headed out with the kids to Disneyland with our friends, the Mulkeys. They have a little boy, Riley who is 2 days younger than Mae. Kristen is "great" with their second son, Dylan. He could show up any day now. Actually we were at Disneyland hoping to walk Kristen to the point of labor. Alas, that did not work. But, at the end of the day we headed over to IHOP. I, of course, had a coupon for dinner, but when we got there, we discovered a better deal: KIDS EAT FREE EVERYDAY AFTER 4 PM! Now, I don't know about you guys, but to me a kid's meal anywhere is a big fat waste of money. They are HUGE, they are overpriced and your kids always want what you have anyway. When we got our check for 3 adults and 3 kids meals before they took the kid's meals off, it was over $70.00! Yikes. My check, with my food and drink came to $16.00 after they took off my kid's food. That would have been a drive thru Del Taco right there!

There are other places that have good deals on kid's meals throughout the week. Here's a website that will help you find them:

Frugal Living

I am going to stress the same thing that this website does: call and make sure your location participates in the kid's eat free program. Nothing is worse than finding out at the end of the meal!

I know it's a treat for us to eat out, so enjoy everyone!
