Cooking More; Eating out Less

August 2nd, 2016 at 06:54 pm

So I have become kind of obsessed with cooking lately. I am cooking 1-2 meals on the weekend for my lunches at work during the week. Since I work from home on Wed and Fri, I only need 3 lunches. I can grab anything while I am at home. I have done really well doing this. I haven't eaten out in a couple of weeks. Really proud of myself.

Things at my 1st job are looking up. We have several jobs that we expect to close in the next few days. I just want us to get past this hump.

I am in the process of refinancing the HELOC on my house to take my mom's name off the loan. When we did the first HELOC and paid off all the credit cards, my credit score shot up over 100 points. So now there is a great chance, with the 2 jobs, that I can get it by myself. We started that process this morning.

I still have planned my budget going forward without my second income. I need to wait until the HELOC is refinanced and things are a bit more stable, but I have hope that that will be sooner rather than later. My body is starting to revolt!

Yesterday was a NSD. I stopped today and got a few things at the store and had to get gas on the way home(1.79/gallon...can you believe it???) Tomorrow is a work at home day and I plan on going no where so it will be a NSD as well.

    Great job on the eating in! I'm sure that is helping your body, eating less fats and processed foods, as well as your budget!! Fingers crossed on the HELOC.

    Cooking is a good obsession! One of the few that almost always saves the budget a ton of money. Big Grin
