It’s hazardous for my health as well as my wallet. Seriously! Have you noticed the prices of certain combo meals? We can occasionally spend more on Subway than we can on a good sit-down lunch with a tip for our family of four! That’s completely ridiculous. While fast food is convenient when you barely have 30 seconds before your child’s next soccer game, there are several ways to spend less on fast food.

Pay attention to your surroundings
As previously noted, some fast-food restaurants might be just as expensive as or more expensive than a luxury sit-down restaurant. Be wary of these areas and stay away from them.

Be creative
It is sometimes more expensive to order two smaller dinners than to divide one larger meal. For example, splitting a foot long Subway sandwich is typically less expensive than getting two 6 inch sandwiches. Or Free pizza from Dominos if its delivered late. All these savings matters a lot.

Portion control is important
While a Whopper or a foot-long sub may tempt you, think about your health and what you’re about to eat first. Aside from the price, some of those sandwiches may have enough fat and calories to keep you going for the rest of the day. Rather than spending an extra $5 on a mega-lunch, go for something smaller and more modest, like a basic cheeseburger or chicken sandwich. These alternatives are not only less expensive, but they also stay in your stomach for a shorter time.

Leave the extras out
The bacon and cheese, as good as they are, should be left out. For each of these up-sells, some restaurants charge up to a $1 more. You may make your sandwich both cheaper and healthier by removing the add-ons.

Half-cut the fries
French fries are one of my favourite foods. However, I am well aware that they are unhealthy for me. So, rather than purchasing two, I usually volunteer to buy one and share it with another person. Not only do we eat less, but we always end up eating less.

Make use of a coupon wherever possible
When it comes to fast food, there are always plenty of coupons to choose from. Look in the local newspaper or on the internet for information. For the most up-to-date offers, such as Dominos coupon codes or Swiggy coupons, go to Askmeoffers or CouponsABC. Don’t forget to double-check the receipt when it comes to coupons. A promo code for anything free the next time you visit is frequently available.

Order water whenever feasible
Drinking water is one of the healthiest and most cost-effective methods to save money. You’ll save not just all of the calories in a sugary beverage, but you’ll also save $2 each drink. If you really must have a drink, order the smallest size offered. Refills are usually free at fast-food places. You’ll save money as long as you get up and refill your drink.

Before departing, always re-fill your glass
Just because the meal is ended doesn’t mean you’re done with that drink! Fill your cup with water and carry it with you. It makes no difference whether you’re thirsty or not right now. You’ll be at some time, and when you are, you’ll be grateful you got that free refill.

Drink coffee at work instead of brewing it at home
Do you enjoy a cup of coffee? Is there free coffee at your place of business? If this is the case, think of it as another workplace benefit, and you’ll save money on food buying everything you’ll need to create it at home. Is there no coffee at your place of business? You don’t like it, do you? Then go ahead and brew it yourself. It will be a LOT less expensive than paying for it every day at a restaurant.

Make a habit of drinking simple coffee
If you have to order coffee, get to know how to appreciate it on its own. Avoid the sweet, high-priced varieties that cost $5 or more. Not only do they contain substantially more sugar than you require in a single day, but they are also far more expensive than regular coffee.
