    Default January no eat out challenge!

    I am challenging myself to no eat out days in January! This will be huge for me! The reason I am starting this is because I slipped up big time on Friday and spent $42 for DH DD and myself to eat a late lunch!!! That is almost my entire buget a week for groceries! I was so diappointed in myself! SO this is the month, when ever I feel like eating out I am going to take myself back to how I felt spenting all that money! Anyone with me?

    I would join you but I dont think I could do that!! . Good luck!

    I hate that feeling when you go out to eat and spend that much. Its dissapointing. I called my kids over and said you think we can do it? They said "haha, no mom we got down to $100 a month and that is just cutting it!" That is so true! I hope to cut this down though, in the new year!

    Well, I won't say that I am not going to eat out at all, but I will challenge myself to only eat dinner out 4 times. And hopefully I won't do it that much. But... my birthday is this month and I know we will go out for that!

    I can't see any reason I would need to next month and I waste a lot of money that way. Wish me luck

    Count me in! I slipped up and ate out 5 times in December. $5 here, $6 there, etc. adds up. Time to get back on track with not eating out.

    I can try this! I'll just have to bully dh into not going out to eat (we rarely do anyway).

    I will limit myself to eating out 2 times this month on the "families" money. I do have to travel so will be eating out for an entire week but it is on the companys dime so I dont count that. No other choice really

    I will admit: I can't stand to drive on the interstate (expressway, whatever you call it) soooo - a friend of mine drives us to my big J's dr. appts downtown - and in return, we take her out for lunch afterwards soooo - with the exception of one day in Jan (he just happens to have an appt in Jan) I'm in -

    wow - way too much info eh?

    Okay I am in for this challenge but it is my granny's birthday this month so we will need to eat out once for her bday. During December we ate out quite a bit (had some extra money due to a second job) so I think including granny's bday, 3 times for the month of January is good for us. I just talked to dh and he is good with this too. Thank you for this challenge!

    I'm in and i'm going to make an addition. I'm not going to buy anything from vending machines or the company cafeteria. For me this is more of a problems than eating at restaurants.

    Count me in!! I only ate out once in December which was an impulse meal at the company cafeteria. I am sure that I can certainly not eat out at all in January and that will help me in meeting my goal of paying off one of my credit cards by Feb 08. Thanks for the challenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
