If this is your first visit I welcome you to my little corner of the world! You might want to start at the introduction of this series. It explains what 31 Days of Change is, and has links to each day's post as they occur. Just click on the 31 Days to Slash Your Budget Painlessly button at the top of my sidebar on the right.
We used to eat fast food a lot on Sundays after church. By the time we get out and arrive home, everyone was starved, and I didn't feel like cooking. In fact I don't cook at all on Sundays. It's my day of rest...from cooking at least!
Our church now has a fellowship hour after church where different teams prepare a light luncheon. It is just enough for my husband and myself, that we usually don't even need more for lunch.
Now, the rule at our house is that you fend for yourself on Sundays (unless we have guests). There is always a jar of peanut butter, lunchmeat, or leftovers. Sunday evening is snack night. Again we forage and usually end up with popcorn, ice cream or leftovers.
A meal at a fast food joint costs our family anywhere from $15.00 - $25.00. At an average of $20 per visit, even 2 times per month saves us $40/month or $480/year.
If you are benefiting from this series, I’d love it if you would grab my button from the top of my sidebar. I will be back with another money saving tip tomorrow. I will keep up a running tally of my savings at the bottom of each new post. Just scroll down to the bottom to see. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll be back!
My tally so far:$4239.82/year
