So a few weeks ago I discovered how much I actually spend on food in a week, and I’ve done some brainstorming for ways to cut down on that.
Since the holidays crept up quickly after my last post – and involved traveling, dining out, and of course Christmas shopping – I decided it wasn’t the best time to start revamping my budget (excuse).
But now, like most of the country, I’m using the mantras: “no excuses” and “turning a new leaf”. I will cut down on food spending with a new year’s resolution. It won’t happen all at once, but I’ll do it in steps.
First, I’ll tackle dining out expenses. I think the best way is to use restaurant deals, which are plentiful around the web (but not always accessible when you search alone). That’s why websites like Cravor help by aggregating all the deals near your location and listing them in one place. You won’t believe all the restaurants you know that have deals you didn’t know about!
So step one of my new years resolution to eat and dine for less is to utilize restaurant coupons any time I can. Check back for updates as I post the best deals and most delicious meals.
Happy holidays and best wishes for the new year!
