I love this:

Like the salad served at the Pizza Hut but dislike the idea that it’s expensive and you are not allowed to take more than once? Here is a guide on how you can maximize your return of investment, invented by some creative Taiwanese students.

  1. Damn, those guys must really like cucumbers.

  2. Pretty cool stunts!

    Seems like there is a competition going on between the customers and the business. First, they introduce it all-you-can eat. Then multiple customers enjoy a single purchase with multiple trips. Then they introduce the one-time rule. So now, multiple customers enjoy a single purchase with a single trip.

    Seems like this would likely end with the elimination of the salad bar.

  3. Now that’s my kind of rogue frugality!

  4. Strangely, I find the idea of all you can eat food to be economic, however….

    People are very conditioned to assume that the more they get for a given amount of money, the more ‘value’ there is.

    Why, if you can get a Big Burger for 3.50 and a Super Big Burger for only 3.99, get the 3.99 !! That’s such a great deal!

    I’m sure the hidden cost of the above ‘value’ is pretty apparent…

  5. Yummy, frugal and pretty!

    But all-you-can-eat isn’t that great of an idea if you can’t eat much or if you don’t like being ridiculously full.

    An order of Thai food, Indian food or a 6-pound burrito platter costs about the same as the salad bar AND you can bring the leftovers home so you can have several more appropriate sized meals instead of one giant one.
