I like to go out to eat sometimes. I like having dinner out with my husband or taking the whole family for a special treat. But there are times that I really don’t like eating out. When I haven’t made a plan for dinner or things get crazy and we find ourselves grabbing a fast food meal, I get irked with myself.
It is so expensive to feed the family at a fast food restaurant. For the $10-$15 (or more) that we spend on a quick meal, I could buy groceries to make a really good meal at home that would probably have left overs for lunch the next day too.
For me, the biggest temptation to grabbing a meal out is just not having a plan. There are sometimes that we have to eat on the run. In those situations, I like to pack food to eat. It costs less and tastes better. It does involve some planning though.
What situations cause you to cave in to the temptation to just grab a fast food meal? Are you trying to eat out less often? Leave a comment and let me know how you’re doing with this issue.
