No Eating Out In August Challange
Even though yesterday was our wedding anniversary we opted to cook dinner together instead of going out. My husbands sister watched the kids and we had a nice evening (without any kids yelling, arguing or fighting). The food was very yummy too!
My husband did go out to lunch with a friend of his from collage. He spent $8.47. Not so great.
That's a total of for the week is $8.47. We'll have to be really frugal for the rest of the week to meet out budget.
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.
