It's so hard to see something so vital to daily life, like money, being wasted. It's even harder to realize, in retrospect, that you are just as guilty as the next person.
A big problem in my house is eating out. Cooking has been something that I haven't been super into. I'm lazy. Plain and simple. I always go with the wasting time mentality. 'Why waste my time standing in the kitchen, slaving over food my husband could possibly not eat, when I could be doing something else?' My "something else" usually consisted of laundry, online games or reading a book.
Why this semi-panic stricken post, you ask?
It's pay day. I haven't looked at the statement in 2 weeks. To look and see 25 transactions related to fast food and sit down restaurants in 14 days is depressing. By the way, there were only 3 sit down restaurant transactions...
Now, some days the transactions were due to Jake and I both buying lunch at separate times. But 25 is still a staggering number to me in a two week time period.
We can do better than that.
It has to end. I need encouragement and inspiration. I'm not going to be able to do it on my own and any nay-saying will cause me to jump ship.
I'm going shopping Saturday morning. No more wasting money buying fast food. Let the cooking begin.
