Secrets of Success

Eat At Home



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.

  • My DH and I discussed this last night. We plan to eat out a lot less and cook at home! - by -POLEDANCEGIRL-
  • This was one of my New Year's resolutions. My son loves to help cook and has a real talent for it so he is going to help out. Plus, now that my boys are teenagers their meals are expensive when we eat out. As soon as they go to school tomorrow I'm planning out menus for the month! Thanks!

  • The food at home is definitely healthier than the food out. I can eat more salads and vegetables at home, and I can control the amount of salt I use. - by CARRAND

  • That's exactly what I do!! I plan all meals out for a week, and do one major grocery run. I have eaten out maybe 5 times max in the past year, including a couple of takeout nights. I started making everything at home 2 years ago, and LOVE IT!! The desire to eat out is gone, because I love the food I make, and make a wide variety. - by RUNDARCYRUN
