Top 10 Foodhacks tips

For iced coffee, freeze brewed coffee or your creamer of choice in trays overnight. Now your delicious chilled beverage won't be diluted as the 'ice' melts, but instead will be enhanced by the added flavors. Happy summer!!!

Forgo the Classic Roast Beef at Arby’s

If you order two Junior Roast Beef Sandwiches, rather than the Classic Roast Beef at Arby’s, you can save yourself money. You get the same amount of food, at the same quality – but you pay less for it. Generally, you’ll save at least $1.

Skip the Double Bacon Cheeseburger at Jack in the Box

If you order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers at Jack in the Box, and take off one of the buns, and put the patty into the other bun, then you essentially get the Double Bacon Cheeseburger, plus an extra bun, but you pay much less for it. People report that this saves $2.

Go for the Steak N’ Shake’s Double N’ Cheese Steakburger

Instead of ordering the Frisco Melt at Steak N’ Shake, go for the Double N’ Cheese Steakburger instead. Order the Double N’ Cheese plain. Just ask for it with sourdough bread, Swiss cheese and Frisco sauce. You get pretty much the same thing for much less!

Check your receipt for discounts

After the cashier hands your fast food over, your receipt is probably the last thing on your mind. Generally, people discard their receipt not long after they finish their meal, but they’re missing out on an opportunity to save money. Surprisingly, many fast food places give customers discount codes, and other savings opportunities, right on their receipts. For example, Burger King often prints an offer for a free burger on its receipts. Many places print a survey offer – so if you answer a quick poll, then you’ll receive a freebie or offer, like a buy one get one free deal. Do keep in mind that the offers on these receipts generally have a short expiration date. Take the time to have a quick look at your receipt, as it could save you money.

Share the fries

One of the easiest ways you can save money on fast food in places like Burger King and McDonald’s is by splitting the fries. If you’re eating out with your spouse or a family member, then order a large value meal and then split the fries between you. Then, the other person only has to order a burger by itself, rather than a whole meal.

Consider the cost of ordering items separately vs. a whole  meal

You might think that ordering the value meal is always the cheapest way to go, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, if you order a sandwich and fries separately, and then get water, rather than a soda, it can work out cheaper in some restaurants. However, you’ll have to compare the price at the particular restaurant you eat at.

Use a good old fashioned coupon

Grocery stores are not the only place where you can use coupons. You can also find tons of coupons for the country’s most popular fast food chains on most coupon sites. Whether it’s for a free drink or 10% off your order, you can find so many money saving coupons for fast food places in the list below.

Stuff a Pillowcase

Space is always in short supply on a camping trip; make the most of your limited space by stuffing your clothes into a pillowcase and using THAT as your pillow.
