I found an auction on eBay yesterday for a $25 gift certificate to a local Indian restaurant (Taste of India, for you Nashvillians). We’ve been there, and it’s pretty good, so I bid on it up to $10. Well, I won it for $7.29 (plus $1 processing, which is kind of a scam since it’s all done electronically, but never mind). Woo hoo! We’ll be able to either have an extra dine out dinner in the next few months (it doesn’t expire for one year) or we can save that portion of one month’s dining budget. We’ll see how frivolous I feel. 😉
As a bonus, the seller (Restaurant.com) threw in a free 16 month subscription to Saveur. Whee!
