I used to eat lunch at a Chinese buffet restaurant every Friday. For $8.99, I thought that it was really a good deal. But lately, I realized – I only eat a few of the selections in the menu. Also, if I am in a buffet, I tend to eat more than the usual. So today, I experimented and bought a take-out lunch from the same restaurant. I put only what I normally eat, and the total bill was only $5.00! It is less than buying a combo meal from McDonalds or Burger King.
