Youre buying too much food.
You're buying too much food.
You're eating out all the time.
If you're busy, no one can argue how much easier it is to grab fast food on your way home rather than cooking (especially if you're feeding a whole family). And obviously, going out to restaurants is often a huge part of your social life. But if you're looking for a smaller food budget, the easiest place to make that happen is by cooking more and eating out less.
There are little ways to cut back, like skipping your daily coffee run in favor of brewing your own coffee at home, or you can opt to make bigger changes, like revamping your whole restaurant budget.
Ash Exantus, a financial coach with BankMobile, told Mic that the ideal should be between 10-20% of your income each month. That means that in that category, you should figure out a dollar amount you spend on restaurants every month, and stick to it. Once you're out of the funds allotted for restaurants each month, you're done.
