We ended up going out to eat a lot last week. I can’t believe what a bad habit we’ve gotten ourselves into! “We will not go out to eat this week!” “We will not go out to eat this week!” (If I say it enough times, maybe I will begin to live it out…!)
We’ve been spending money on frivolous food that is not good for our bodies or our bank account and I AM SICK OF IT.
How do we save money and move toward healthier eating? I’m not sure, but I do know that just not eating out will be a step toward health.
Here’s the At-Home-I-Promise Menu for the week. Check Org Junkie for lots more ideas.
