Thou Shall Know Thy Menu

If you frequently order from the same place, get to know the ins and outs of its menu. You may end up paying less (or more) by rearranging certain items. For example, your deli might offer a turkey club for $8, but a BLT with turkey added will likely cost less—maybe only around $5. The only difference between the two is that middle slice of bread, which no one will miss. But buyer beware: Some places charge extra for special requests, so ask before you order.
