Greg and I are also horrible about cooking at home. (We NEVER do it.) I'm a really good cook too! But after an 8-10+ hour workday the last thing on my mind is cooking and doing dishes. (Even though ideally I would love to do it.) As a result, we are always trying to figure out ways to cut corners in eating out. Recently we discovered the $5 foot longs at Subway and they are a-mazing! No dishes, not too heavy on the calories, and best of all CHEAP! Greg and I split one for lunch and one for dinner Monday- Friday. They have such a variety to choose from, so far we haven't gotten tired of it! (Not to sound like Jared, but can I just say that the jeans are fitting a little less tight too?)
What about you guys? How are you trimming and slimming your budgets during these economic times? One thing I do love about the challenge of economic uncertainty is that I find myself being more creative, more resourceful, and thankfully; less wasteful. There is something so freeing about shaking off the shackles of excess in your life. Comment and share your tips on how you are scrimping and saving!
