Eating out is easy, but it is often costly. Food is expensive enough at the grocery store these days. But in addition to the rising cost of food, is the associated rising cost of eating out at restaurants and restaurant take-out. When you make your shopping list, plan your meals for the week as well. This way, you won’t give in to the temptation of ordering a pizza instead of eating a prepped meal you planned that is within the safety of your budget.
