I live in Greenfield with my husband and cat. I work full time. Frugality and simplicity have been a part of my life long before they became popular and it has made life a lot less stressful. I love volunteering, home improvement/decorating, crafting and gardening.
When we go out to eat at a non-fast food restaurant, we usually have a buy one get one free or buy one get one at 50% off coupon. Or, we may have a gift card. No matter what, we always leave a tip. Lately, we have experienced great service, so we leave a 20% tip based upon what the entire bill would have been prior to the coupon or percentage taken off. Just because we have a percentage off or "free" coupon or gift card does not mean that the good service goes unrewarded.
If service is not good, we tip accordingly...or , we don't return to the establishment.
