Wow! That is awesome.

We eat out about 4 times a month...we get a pizza from Little Caesars, so a total of $20. Other than that, we eat at home.

Nice job! I really need stop eating out. We've cut back a lot but not enough. It's just so tempting when you know you'll have dinner finished late or kids are hungry when you're out and of course I forget the snacks!

That's awesome, very inspiring, we are a family of ten and running through Mcdonalds is costing us way too much, it's my goal this month to quit it totally. We never used to eat out AT ALL but got really slack over the school holidays, time to get back to it.

I started keeping a emergency stash of Lara bars, dried fruit, glutino pretzels and bottled water.. So if we weren't prepared we had that to eat. I'm learning to never leave the house with out the crockpot loaded.. That helps too.
