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 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!
We only ate out about (I didn't keep track but can recall 6) 6 times last year. I am treated to lunch by my boss on occasion so I don't count that since I don't pay for it. All other days i bring my lunch and my drink to work from home. As a family, we went out for pizza a few times, salad shop once, and IHOP once last year after DS guitar performance, to celebrate. So that's my goal for 2012, eat out 6 times or less this year.
