In 2014 we spent about $650/month on groceries on average. Considering that we also spent about $350-400/month eating out, our budget seemed a bit high. Starting in January, we wanted to significantly reduce our eating out spending. My initial goal was to keep the same budget of $650 for groceries and just eat out less. My reasoning was that by eating at home more we'll may spend more on groceries.
Sam came up with an idea to change up our eating habits for the month of January. We used to cook 6 days a week, and that's really time consuming to do the meal planning, shopping and cooking for that many meals. Sam's idea was to cook 3 times a week and eat our leftovers for dinner on the other nights. We used to eat our leftovers for lunch, but we decided instead to start taking sandwiches.
How often do you cook dinner?
