Six out of seven!!

January 18th, 2009 at 06:47 am

This week has been unusual. We have stayed home six out of seven nights. We usually eat out almost every night. The car auction has been on, so we stayed home to watch that. I thought we would probably go out last night, but then it started snowing. So, we stayed home and ate pancakes. The funny thing is, we have really not saved that much money by staying home. One night we had KFC and another night we made home made pizza. We usually spend about $17 for a meal out for two (we take our own drinks) and these two meals cost almost as much. Plus the fact that we have to use the oven, clean up the kitchen and run the dishwasher.
Tonight, we are having steaks and baked potatoes. I think I will be ready to go out more next week. Of course, they are calling for snow Monday and tuesday, so I may change my mind.

    You're allowed to bring your own drinks?

    I woke up this morning and it was snowing...enough already!! But at least I live in New England...I'd be really mad if I lived in Georgia and it was snowing!!

    Yes, amber. we are a dry county so we are allowed to brown bag it. (liquor, wine or beer)

    That was my thought also! Man, BYOB must be nice, we hardly ever get to do that. But I just about always drink water instead of blowing money on soft drinks when eating out.

    And that's interesting, I always assumed eating in was usually MUCH cheaper, except for eating from the FF Value menu.

    A Julie record indeed! Hopefully that snow wont keep you in all week next week!

    Get out of here, that is is nice

    Yes, it is nice. And since we only drink diet sprite with our mixed drinks, we bring that in also. When I have to order a drink, I always order water.

    I too have taken a liking to water. A love a chunk of lemon in it. I also like it tempid. I heard that was better for you too.

    We did very well not spending this week, however, yesterday/last night blew it. First, I needed gas ($50.00), then lunch ($9.00) since I spent some time in the office during the day, finally, the whole family bullied me into a sushi dinner which is ALWAYS at least $150.00 since we ALL order sushi and habachi.

    Anyway, I work hard and when my family wants a little treat, isn't that an investment as well!?!??! God bless.
