How much do you spend eating out?
Here is a confession that is mind boggling to me... the first year we were married we spent at the very minimum $6000.00 in one year dining out. We ate at a nice restaurant 5 days a week at $25 a pop. We both worked and the last thing I was going to do was cook. That was also the same time in our lives that we both drove two spankin' brand new cars and lived in a house that we could not afford. Sigh.
Oh how things have changed. Our budget for dining today is $40/monthly. That means that Bryan takes his lunch to work everyday. After every dinner I pack up the left overs and freeze them so all he has to do on the way out the door is grab a container.
