    We did alright last year. But this year I am planning on a gazelle year. I want things in life and eating out or meeting those goals is my motivator!

    Today we had traditional New Year's breakfast at my parents house with family. I don't count that since everything was made from scratch and didn't cost us anything. Lunch and Dinner were prepared here at home.

    I'm in! It does save lots and makes me more apt to eat up leftovers that I have at home.

    PURE LAZINESS is a poor excuse for wasting money!

    Will try to only eat out when it is a 'social thing'.......

    I'm in on this challenge...I'm very guilty of buying my lunch 5 days a week while at work! It's bad, and at anywhere from $5-$8 a day that adds up wayyyyy tooo fast. So I already have my lunch packed and ready for tomorrow, so no excuse to buy. I have a tasty ham dinner leftover meal! Oh and I didn't eat out today. I'm going to shoot for only 2 screw ups a month....so 29 no eat out days for the month of January!
