I was absolutely blown away by the discovery of my wasteful spending eating dinner out after work. I am ashamed to say I highlighted over $600 in restaurant debits on my bank statement. My husband and I are newlyweds with no kids, and have no desire to cook after a long day of working and sitting in traffic. We decided to sit down and plan out a weekly menu so that we know what to expect when we come home, and won’t have that temptation to buy a meal out. I was amazed when my groceries for the week totaled only $52 (considering that is one restaurant meal for us). I now pack our lunches and plan breakfast and dinner.
We will save hundreds of dollars doing this and it feels great coming together to find a solution.
Thanks so much!
