This week, we’re trying something new at the Wright house. We sat down Sunday night and planned out six days worth of dinners. One reason is we’re tired of the always-annoying question, “what’s for dinner?” The other is I think it will save a little money on eating out.
We don’t eat out nearly as much as your average family, but planning like this will cut even our infrequent eating out. If you already have your meals planned and groceries bought, the urge to “just go pick something up” is gone at the end of a stressful day. Before it was really easy just to run out and grab something. Now, there’s really no reason to outside of special occasions. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but feeding five people at any restaurant is becoming a ridiculously expensive proposition.
