30 Day Challenge...and hopefully longer!

I saw a challenge on a money matters blog about challenging yourself to not eat out for a whole month! With my husband FREAKING out about his student loans coming up and our need to eat in more often, I thought what the heck. 30 days isn't that terribly long and I have actually been meaning to drop fast food whenever Keyser is old enough to understand what a Happy Meal is, so why not try it out? It may even help me (us) lose a few L-B's.

So heres the Rules:
1. Menu plan for 2 weeks, enough meals to make it through our bi-monthly grocery trips.

2. Sprinkle in plenty of meals that I can easily make, because the worst culprit for me wanting to order pizza, etc. is that I am tired and lazy after work ;)

3. Special occasions are the only reason to eat out (i.e Mother's Day, our anniversary)

4. If someone brings us food (Travis' mom does bring him food sometimes while I'm at work...cough...spoiled...cough), then its all good. As long as we aren't paying for it!

We are hoping this saves some green when it comes to the monthly expenses. I will be tracking it to see how it goes and I will let you all know the results. This is going to be tough, but I think it will be pretty rewarding as well! Pray that we stick to it!

With that, I leave you with a big boy pic of my little man...He's sitting up all by himself now (tear)

BTW, I'm watermarking all my pics from now on. There are a lot of crazies out there who steal pics and call them their "own". Can't be too cautious!!

I had another friend do this...I guess we should give it a shot too! I may have to wait till after baby is here though, can't help those gotta have moment :o)

Too funny you mention the watermarking this was a huge issue on The Bump this past week!!

Good luck not eating out! I am sure it is easy peezy!
