Eat At Home, Cook Your Own Food

Home Cooking

I’ve been working on my monthly budget and I just spend too much money on eating out. I typically spend around $7-10 per meal on food I could really out do on my own, since I have all the implements necessary for cooking.

I’m a decent cook, I’d say. And from now on, I’m cooking lunch at home. I got ordered some sparkling wines from the Oddbins Prosecco Range page and made baked chicken with rice and black beans this afternoon and it cost me all of $1.30 to make it, plus a bit more with the Prosecc. $0.70 less than $2. Compare that to the $7-10 I spend eating at Quizno’s or wherever I end up, and I’ll be saving a large chunk of change over the next few months. Plus my chicken is pretty awesome. I enjoyed it much more than Subway.

I may treat myself to a meal out once a week, but I’ll still be saving enough to pay off bills early and buy more Moleskine notebooks.

Cooking at home rocks and unless you have restaurants that deliver it almost always beats out alternatives as far as taste + price is concerned. I would also check out growing your own herbs and vegetables using a grow box such as growboxed.com. This would allow you to freeze your meats and then when your planning a meal you can thaw them out and cook them with fresh veggies without having to spend cash on gas and overpriced produce at the grocery store.

I’ve also found that the less I eat out and the more I pack lunches to work, the easier it is to keep the weight off. I’m sure the two aren’t unrelated.
