We are not going to eat fast food for the whole month of February! We are going to save money and calories. I have decided to try it for just a month. It is so convenient sometimes to just drive thru and pick something up for lunch or even dinner. Even if we are out and about we are going to plan ahead and figure it out. We are not going to spend our money anywhere that has a drive thru. "Yikes that includes Star-bucks." I told Raima. He said "Yep no more! Let's save our money and see what a difference it makes." We added up our fast food spending just for the month of December (It was a busy month and we traveled out of town several times) and I am embarrassed of the amount. I choose not to share. January was better but but still a lot. We are really trying to save our money and get on the right track. So today our Challenge starts and I will keep you updated on how we are doing. Anyone want to join our challenge?
If you don't think you need to maybe you should start a tracker this month it will amaze you !!! My sister Linda says she NEVER eats fast food except for a salad from Jack in Box everyday for Lunch and a occasional Chai Tea latte. We added up just her salads everyday and we figured out that $1.77 everyday Monday-Friday Equaled $8.85. For the entire year if she would put $1.77 in an envelope at the end of the year she would have $460.00 that is not including her occasional Latte. Granted she does have to eat lunch but she could save more than half that if she took leftovers and made her own salad at home. I know I spend a lot more $1.77 when I get lunch thru a drive thru. So you could image how much I would save. Go ahead except my challenge save some money and go on a mini vacation this summer.$5 or $6 every now and then added to your savings account really adds up quick.
