For many years my husband and I did A LOT of eating out- probably at least 3 days a week.  Now that we do much less of that I am amazed at how much it costs- I barely used to blink an eye.

Cooking at home is cheap.. when I shop the sales (which is most of the time) my dinners for 4 usually cost less than $5 when I use simple ingredients (chicken breasts, pasta, hamburger..).  Dinners with fancier ingredients (steak, salmon, shrimp..) still don’t go over $10.  Even when we just go to the taco shop its still $17 for the 4 of us- and that is splitting 2 meals with  side orders of rice and beans, no drinks- it’s not extravagant.

And in the back of my head I am always thinking- this dinner would pay for 3 days of supper at home!!

If you have a frugal tip email it to FFD. We would love to share it.
