For many people, part of a typical date entails going out to eat. Unfortunately, eating out can be extremely on a college budget. Our informal research showed that many students spend more than $1000/year on dating. It is likely about half of that amount is spent on eating out. Fortunately, there are many possible ways that a person can save on dining out.
