|My husband and I don't like to cook, so we tend to eat out a lot at inexpensive, but healthy fast food places, like Panera. Typically, we spend about $7 each (for takeout) there. To me, that seems like a pretty good deal--we don't have to get groceries, make the food or clean up afterwards, and spending $14 on dinner isn't that much.
On the other hand, we find that when we do get groceries and cook at home, our weekly grocery bills are usually about $200. When we get tired of eating out, we cook at home, and do menu planning, so we can get everything at once. But getting the groceries, combined with the time it takes to make the food and clean up, makes it seem like eating out at the cheap fast food places (but getting salads and soups or healthy sandwiches--not burgers and fries) is more economical. Now, I will say that when we make something like a lasagna or casserole, etc., that lasts for more than just one meal, it becomes more economical to eat at home.
I just wonder if we're doing something wrong with our grocery shopping. Does $200 per week (including juice and soft drinks, which are expensive) sound right for two people or too much? The interesting thing is, I'd say half our grocery list is produce, but produce isn't super cheap. When we get sweet potatoes for a sweet potato dish, for example, we usually end up spending about $12 just on those.
What do you think?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
