April No Eat Out Month Finale

So, as you can see I feel behind with my weekly updates on our new eat out month in April. Stink! I really wanted to follow through and complete those last two posts so that whomever actually reads this blog would have a couple more simple but delicious recipes. So sorry!

Anyway, just to document, we finished strong!! We went over our grocery budget for the month, but I'm happy to report that we only "gave in" one single night ALL month! We had dinner plans change at the last minute one night and that mixed in with me being ridiculously sick and not wanting to cook, we ordered a single pizza and paid $10.00. Totally worth it at that point though.

Overall, I cooked 20 meals, and we spent a little over $400. I have to say, I'm pretty proud of us, this was a HUGE accomplishment since we're the type of people who eat out becuase of convenience.

So, there you have it!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

That is AWESOME Jill!! I was simply trying not to do any fast food drive through in April and found that to be more challenging than it should have been. I'm so proud of you guys! So you spent more on groceries...but h os much did you save from your eating out or entertainment categories?

Thanks Stacey! It was SOOOOOOO hard! We probably saved at least $100, if not more so I know it evened out. To begin with, I didn't give us any "extra" in our grocery budget, just took out the dining out budget all together.
