Stretching the food budget

As you might know, I'm always working on ways to stretch my budget and eat a little better while fitting it in with living on my own. I've sort of given up on trying to cook at home. I end up cooking too much, eating too much and spending too much. So here are some ways lately I've been saving money while eating/drinking out...

I got free syrup in my coffee for using my Green Level Starbucks card this morning.

Yesterday's lunch was made possible using leftover salad from my Buffalo Wild Wings lunch.

Today's $5 Footlong will become two 6" meals. The chips will be a snack at work.

I've been coupon clipping again. Everything from buy-one-get-one-free to a free meal with drink purchase and even some completely free meals courtesy of keeping coupons ready to go in my wallet.

Just doing a bunch of little things to make my food budget stretch a little further.

Any tips for a young bachelor saving a dime?

I'd appreciate them!
