Here’s the recap of our meal costs for today. This is for two adults:

- $3.39 Breakfast
- $1.86 Lunch
- $1.40 Dinner
- $6.65 TOTAL for the day

It’s amazing that two adults can eat for a full day for a price that is less than the cost of a extra value meal from McDonalds Yes, it takes some planning and it takes a little time in the kitchen, but it is so well worth it!

Imagine if two adults ate out for 2 meals each day for 5 days per week for an entire year. That’s 260 days of eating out. If each purchased meal for those two adults cost $7 each, then the total cost for the year would be 260 days X $14 (for two adults) = $3,640.

If the same two adults cooked those two meals per day at home at= $ a cost of $2 for each meal, then the cost would be 260 days X $4 (for two adults) = $1.040.

The savings would be $2,600 for the year or over $215 each month!
