Way back in January of 2010, Jeremy and I put a moratorium on spending. For the month of January, we didn’t spend any money outside of the necessities. While we aren’t going that far this January, we are saving money by eating in for the entire month of January. The last time we did this I cooked all kinds of good food. Let’s hope I can be as motivated this time.
Eating in for a whole month gives me time to A)Save money and B)Remain super conscientious about what I eat.
To quote my 2010 self, “ I love eating out. I hate in magazines when they say, “Make this at home, and it will be as nice as going out.” Well the food may taste as good, but there is so much more to going out then that like ambience, not having to do dishes, and having someone else make the food while you can just sit and chat.”
It’s true that I love, love, love eating out and trying new restaurants. Such a first world problem I know.
Thursday nights will be the most difficult when I’m super tired from the week and don’t feel like cooking.
Here’s to a fatter wallet and a thinner waist.
