I cannot believe how much money we have at the end of the month now that we cook at home more often. We have saved money AND can control our portions, calories, etc. It's more work, but home-cooked food tastes the best. Double the recipe and freeze half for the nights you don't want to cook. Save the meals out for the rare special occasion.

I'm not much of a cook, and I live alone, so eating out is the easy solution for me. To talk myself into eating at home more often, I made a SparkStreak goal for myself: "Cook dinner at home" 4 out of 7 days. The last two weeks, I've made it 7/7, and I've lost three and a half pounds! Can't help but think there's a correlation.
