I'll just assume you're cheap like me

I'm well known among my people as a Frugal Franny (no one has ever called me that, but who doesn't love alliterations?). I have a little plastic coupon organizer and will attend basically any function that promises free food. I cruise the city streets looking for empty parking spaces with non-expired meters. I take compliments terribly because I'll always tell people how much I paid for the shoes they like or a new bag. Don't get me wrong, we're comfortably inhabiting the Yuppie side of the scale, but saving a few bucks just ices my cake.

The point here is that I just scored an awesome deal and I wanted to share it. Restaurant.com is new to me (since the rest of the world hasn't caught on to how bodacious Des Moines is, we get stuff like that a little later), but oh, wow. There's a deal right now, where you can get an extra 80% off! Just type in "clearance" as a coupon code when you check out.

I nabbed $50 to my favorite swanky restaurant, Lucca, for $4. Yeah. Four hundred pennies. Sure, we have to spend $100, but that little $4 spend is about to become one fancypants bottle of wine!

So, go forth, my little cheapskates, and getcha some! You can even print out your gift certificate and go out on the town tonight.

Happy weekend!

*Not paid for this little PSA. Just one cheap gal, spreading the l-o-v-e.

  2. Oooh I love restaurant.com! A word of warning- a lot of them won't let the coupon count for alcohol- just make sure you read the T&Cs carefully before you go. Have fun!
