After the bills where payed I was left with enough to buy food for three weeks but I spent a good portion on coffee and take out like Chinese food , pizza, and Olive Garden. I was left to buy food for the house for only two weeks. For example, my paycheck is 1000 dollars, 600 were for the bills so I 'm left with 400. Which I would be able to buy food for the house for three weeks that 's three pay check that the rest I can spend on me. I order take out 3 out of 7 days of the week and take out is minimum for me 30 dollars (I eat a lot so what) after the week it would be 120 I would have if I didn 't spend it on take out. I drink coffee everyday of the week and at race track a medium coffee is 5 dollars after the week that 's 35 dollars that could have been in my pocket if I didn 't spend it. Having to buy food every week for the house messed me up when it came to pay the bills next week.

I made a few adjustments to how much of my money goes to eating out and coffee. It was a small change but it made a big difference on my budget because I then was able to save enough money to buy food for the house once every two weeks.i had to make them because I was not going to be able to improve my situation when it came to food. I was losing money in the long run because so much would go down the drain unless I used half of it to buy food and still be able to go eat out. Now my budget looks better and I 'm saving money while I enjoy

    That means the typical family spends more than half of what my household spends on our grocery bill on just fast food. 40% of adults eat out everyday because it is convenient to grab something and make the mistake of thinking it is cheap. People don’t realize how quickly this spending adds up and if they actually did the math they would realize they could spend much less on making a large dinner that would feed the whole family at home. For example, you may be able to go to a fast food place and get a whole burger and fries for two dollars but when you really think about it that two dollars is going to feed one person, one meal that most likely isn’t going to fill them up due to the fact that it is not a good, fibrous…

    With the extra money I revised I bought a Tracphone LG 306G that I found at my local Walt-Mart store in Frankfort IN. My monthly payments were now $35 a month. Food: I used my knowledge and wisdom and became roommate with a good Mexican friend of mine who knows how to cook up a storm. When holidays come around it’s always a smart idea to migrate to our Aunts house where food is like mana. For that reason I spent only about $100 monthly along with $20 for eating out expensive, because lets be honest I would be eating out at my moms house.…
