No Eating Out In August Challange
Yesterday we didn't spend any money on eating out. Although my husband did have a work lunch with some visiting Russian people. (Don't worry it was free.) And he brought me a piece of what he said was Baklava. I had never tasted it before but have always wanted to. It wasn't that great. I was a bit disappointed. Oh well, at least it was free right!
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 all of you who may be challenging yourselves to not eat out also.
