Unless I have in mind to try some new burger I always stand on the side to think about what I want and the cost of it so I get the most value and don't waste money. I always disliked how pricy fast food got so unless I'm using coupons im going to try and gauge what I'm buying since I buy fast food rarely. Besides the food almost never looks like the picture

here in the philipine you can buy fried chicken with burger and fries for 150 pesos equal to 3 dollars, but if you buy raw chicken for 100 pesos or 2 dollars you get 6 pcs of chicken you, youself can fry in frying oil, and you can eat that 6 pcs chicken in the morning, in the afternoon and at the night, you can save lots of money just buy raw food and cook it your self, and fast food are very fatening and very unhealthy, your kidneys can die when you are addicted to fast food, wich can lead to dialisis with cost 5000 pesos per week, so you can actully save millions of pesos just buying raw food, than fast food, fast food is death

My strategy in a fast food restaurant: stay with conventional combo: a burger-a side fries - a drink, even though they're not in combo and 'sounds like cost you more'. After all, knowing how much you need is the key to avoid all these frenzies.

It came out to 11 cuz you ordered the dbl quarter pounder. If you ordered a normal cheeseburger, fries, and a drink it would come out to about 4 dollars I'd say.

And it's true. A cheeseburger (I'm from Mexico and work on a BK) costs $1 and you can upgrade it for another dollar. A salad cost $4 and a bottle of water costs the same as a large soda.
So yeah, it's cheaper to buy junk food, and I think that's the main reason that there's so much overweight in USA and Mexico, because it's expensive to eat healthier.

Once again the leading crypto asset BITCOIN is currently trading up marginally at above $11,500 region as the BTC bulls now target $12,000 resistance level and they are still acting very strong by taking full control of the market. However with the strength possessed by the BTC bulls, it is wise we get involved in a day trading to grow a very strong portfolio with the little we hold at the moment. its been successful for me for over 2 years because i was smart enough to find a working strategy/daily signals which was provided by a pro trader known as Young, he has been a known signal provider in the crypto space today which has proven to be very accurate and yield great profits. Last month i was able to grow my 1.1btc to 6.8btc with Young daily signals which you would agree is a very good profit, however i would advice everyone out there to take great advantage to grow the little they hold now and trade with his signals so as to grow a very strong portfolio ahead, Young can be reach via Instagram via @you_ngli or email linyoun56g@gmail .com

As a young kid going into restaurants I did not know I was supposed to be lured in by those fast food tricks. In my mind, I wanted to get the cheapest food so that I wouldn't burden my parents to pay so much more money.

Heres a tip, whenever youre getting a drink ask for *NO ICE* and you'll get more than a cup full of ice with a few fluid oz of your drink. Just go home and put your own ice in it.

Fast food is cheap if you know how to order! Use the app for coupons and order what you want and not what they advertise! There is a reason why you came to fast food - more food for less money so don’t go for the combos!

Ayo. Ive worked at this mcdonalds for about 2 months already. And one day It was kinda slow so I decided to play around with the computer ordering system. There is a button on the screen that say “ Show prices” And you can turn it on or off. Its always off so I decided to turn it on and look at the menu. Then I saw that a ❗️4 piece chicken nugget is $1.99 and a 6 piece is $2.00 ❗️😂😂

Get the Burger King app. They have a "snack box" deal - 8 nuggets, cheeseburger, small fry and a drink - all for $3. Just enough to fill you up without emptying your wallet!
