Today's post at Free From Broke lists Six Ways Eating Out Less Has Made Our Family Better. I couldn't agree more, and I've got a few things to add to the list:
- My kids are learning how to read recipes, measure, multiply, divide, and follow directions.
- I'm learning to be more creative, rather than cooking the same 10 dishes all the time.
- I'm justifying the snazzy refrigerator and dishwasher we purchased when we updated our kitchen.
- We're wasting less food. Ever bought enough food for a week, eaten out three times and wasted the leftover food? When we stick to our meal plans, the food is always eaten.
What ways has your family benefited from eating at home?
