Usually I spend $30-$60 per weekend on food (i.e., almost every meal out). But this weekend, I ate leftovers, cooked brunch, and got some food from home.
So my grand total on food? Less than $21.
I’m going to see if I can keep this up – cooking brunch with CB was fun and relaxing, and the food came out really well. The money saved is awesome as well. The only other thing I spent money on was gas. For entertainment, we watched free movies on hulu.com.
The one thing that I did splurge on was real maple syrup. $6 for a small-ish bottle… but it tastes delicious. I figured with all the money I saved by not going out to eat, I can afford some pure maple syrup goodness.
