    Have you ever thought about going to one of those places where they have all the ingredients and you put together like a week's worth of meals? If I remember right, they cost about half what you would pay to go out, and they are good meals.

    before Dave Ramsey we ate out way too much. Now it is only on occasion. We budget $25 a month. If we don't go out one month it rolls to the next and then we can do a real nice dinner. We also have our "blow" money and that is for our personal use so if we want to grab fast food for lunch or something when we are by ourselves we do that. When I say fast food it's Chick-fil-a, subway, Tropical Smoothie, Moes, Chipolte, Panera, etc. We NEVER do McDonald's, BK, etc.

    Kebrina, just curious how much you budget for your "blow" money? I probably use $10/week when I am on the road a lot for work.

    Before we started Dave Ramsey we ate out WAY too much....like $300/month. However, we now budget $50/mo and it is more than enough. I really enjoy cooking so we don't eat out much. The money is usually used if we are in town and won't get home in time for lunch or for quick dates (ie. ice cream, pie, etc.). Very rarely do we dip into our "blow" money for eating out, unless we are traveling.
