Ways You Waste Your Money 2/4

Dining Out Frequently

Spending $10, $20, $30 per person for dinner can be a huge drain on your wallet. Throw in a $6 sandwich for lunch every day and you’ve got quite a leak. Learning to cook and bringing your lunch from home can save a couple hundred bucks each month. When you do go out, consider getting carry-out instead of dining in (you’ll save on the tip and drink), skip the overpriced appetizer and dessert, and search the Web for coupons ahead of time.

true though there are times (like right now) I just dont really feel like cooking. I hate when we are sick. But we never go out sick so its a lot of quicky things or delivery

We rarely eat out because of the expense, especially with trying to fill up a teenage boy - Oy!

We gave that up a long time ago. We sometimes get good coupons for pizza online and are able to get Papa John's for half price or something. We also figure out which days kids eat free at certain restaurants :)
