Dining in May- Day 9 (Don't forget about the $25 Olive Garden Giftcard Giveaway!)

I'll be totally honest- I have been TERRIBLE this month! :(

I've been feeling pretty exhausted lately and just haven't felt much like cooking- which has led me to not only eat dinner out more ofter, but lunches too. I cooked a couple of times last week but not nearly as much as I should have. I'm getting right back on track today though!

I want to know how you are doing! Every comment you leave on the Dining In blog posts throughout the month will earn you another entry into the $25 Olive Garden gift card giveaway. On the 1st of June one lucky reader will win the gift card so they can celebrate on me!

You don't have to be perfect to win! Even if you slip up and end up eating out, just get back on track! Keep track of how much you spend though, so you can see what a substantial savings you'll have at the end of the month.

Dining in in May- and a $25 Olive Garden Giftcard giveaway!

You may remember a while that I did a segment on no dining out for a month. The results were astonishing! We saved nearly $1000 compared to the previous month just by preparing meals at home and bringing our lunches to work instead of eating out!

This month, I invite you to join me. Whether you shop with coupons or not, this is a fantastic way to jump start your savings, or just free up some cash for something that you really want. Start by taking a look at your bank account and see what you spent on dining out last month. Then create a meal plan based on what you have on hand each week. Make sure you take a little time to prep your meals, whether that means a little time on your day off putting everything together so you just have to pop it in the oven, or utilizing your slow cooker so you can just walk in at the end of the day to a meal that's ready to eat. Some people find it easier to prep several meals in advance, then store them in the fridge or freezer and re-heat them throughout the week.

Whatever your method is, share it here! Every comment you leave on the Dining In blog posts throughout the month will earn you another entry into the $25 Olive Garden gift card giveaway. On the 1st of June one lucky reader will win the gift card so they can celebrate on me!

You don't have to be perfect to win! Even if you slip up and end up eating out, just get back on track! Keep track f how much you spend though, so you can see what a substantial savings you'll have at the end of the month.

Good luck everyone! Can't wait to hear how much you save this month! :)
