So, we tried to fix this problem last year and failed. But, it is totally ridiculous and I am sick of it.
We WASTE so much money eating out and on food in general. We just get whatever we want, when want, any time we want it. Dumb. We could be saving over $1000 per month in addition to our other savings if we weren't just blowing it on food.
This is how ridiculous it is. Go ahead and bash and make me feel bad because we need to change this problem.
We spent $3,120.32 in December on food, eating out, coffee, etc...
Oh my goodness. That is what we do when totally unchecked and not monitoring how much we are spending.
For the new year, I said enough is enough.
I started using mint.com again so that I can easily watch where money is going and maintain a budget.
I have decided to try and keep our food spending under $1500/month this year. I am monitoring this month and being pretty strict. I am hoping to be able to budget even less than that as we grow accustomed to it.
$1500! That is less than half of what we were spending.
Tell me how fucking stupid we are.
