Christmas Question #12: Do you “eat” your money at Christmas?

Does your family eat out more than you plan during the month of December because of a hectic schedule, often causing the budget to go out the window? 

Eating out can take a “big bite” out of your budget, especially when it wasn’t “in the budget.”  Many times, we eat out just because we are too tired, and it seems like the simple solution for dinner.  Make a list of foods that are freezer friendly for our family and make those meals during October and November.  Double the recipe and put in your freezer to have as meals during December.  Mark on your calendar what meals you will have on each night.
