Yesterday I think we did great on eating out even though my husband had to for work. (He had a lunch meeting he had to go to). Well he only spent $3.75. That brings our weeks total to $5.95. Not bad. We have only two days left and $4.05 left. I'm hoping to be under budget. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Here are the guidelines we set up for the challenge:
1. Reduce our $20.00 a week budget for eating out to $10.00 a week. Putting the extra $10.00 into our Christmas fund.
2. Try to not eat out more than one time a week. (This is particularly going to be challenging for my husband because the people at his work love to eat out and he loves to go with them.)
3. Work or church related eating out that we do not pay for does not count.
4. We will track our progress daily and report back here. I am hoping this will motivate us since we are going to have more accountability to all of you.
Good luck to everyone who is following along!
