Ashley and I used to eat out way too much. It was more of a time thing to us. By the time we worked 8 hours and did our hour commute home, neither of us wanted to cook a meal. There was a point where I sat down and realized that we were spending at least $25 per meal for dinner at least 4 times a week! For those of you counting at home, we were spending $100 or more per week eating out. Somehow we were doing that and still spending $100/week at the grocery store.
Now we're down to spending $100 per week for groceries and eating out only once a week. We're easily saving $75/week just by eating at home. Over the span of a year, that's $3,900 saved! So, eat at home and save some dough. You'll have a fatter wallet and eat healthier, more reasonable portions.
