It’s a no brainer to not eat out frequently. So, some friends of mine and I made freezer meals for the crock pot today. I spent $167 on 22 meals ($7.62 each meal). If each meal replaces an ‘eating out’ meal with an average cost of $20, then that means my family will save $273. I have failed to plan in this area in the past, and since I don’t get off work until 6pm, it has left my family eating out. Careful planning will eliminate this excess expense and keep us healthier in the process.
