$36.79 I THINK "CHEAPEST" week so far!!
Im sitting at the diningroom table doing my Sunday afternoon/evening ritual of calulating what our dinner meals cost us this week, while my son works on a project on his computer. I asked him to guess what he thinks we spent this week, and in his childlike logic calculated if a family of 4 on average spends 20 dollars everytime they go to Subway(his fave fast food)and they went for 7 days they would spend $140.00. He further calculated since our dinners are far better then Subway, dinner must cost us $300 a week. So he was slightly off......point is, one may think whipping into McDonalds, Wendy's, Subway(you get the jist of this) that they are saving big, but they are coming out way in the hole financially and more importantly nutritionally. Our meals this week were packed with vitamins, nurtients, and good family time together around the table.
