So how am I doing? Almost half of June has gone since I started my No Eat-Out Month Experiment, I thought why not share my eat-out details with you.
When it comes to food I can't be as honest as otherwise, I know but that's .... my weakness! So let's see where have I spent in the last 15 days:
* Coffee: $17.79
* Panera Bread: $7.89
I anticipated on the very on-set of this seemingly experimental activity of mine, that it is impossible for me to spend nothing on eating out but yeah the above figures, kind of, look like going in the direction of success ;) I spent $124 on food in May '09 which prompted me to sort to this activity and now the total is way too low, yup it is working fellas ....
However, $17.79 for only coffee is bad enough, I agree, but this time it wasn't me alone. I got pleasant company of my brother-in-law who is visiting the US on his business trip of a month or so. We spent this past weekend together roaming around in the suburbs of Wilmington, DE. Fortunately and unfortunately, I could only spend on coffee. Well in the end we had wonderful and eventful time!
I will post again when this experiment concludes on July 1, 2009 with actual figures of my eat-out spendings and how was this experience for me to go through. Till then, let's hope I don't spend a big chunk there ;)
How practical do you think these experiments are? Have you undergone any such by yourself? If so, how was it? Did you achieve what you aimed for? Leave a comment!
