Happy Monday folks! Can you believe today is the last day in August?! Holy smokes. The year is FLYING by which means that we are inching closer and closer to BIG things for our family. Since we have those big things (graduation, licensure, moving, etc.) on the horizon, Chris and I are trying to stick to a better budget. We kind of budgeted willy-nilly in the past but we are buckling down these next 7 months to save as much as we can. One of the areas we are trying to reign in is eating out. Now, that isn’t something we are going to completely cut out because goodness knows that we need to get out of the house on our own occasionally. BUT we can do better in that arena. So this weekend we decided to do a date night at home instead.
So last night Chris fired up the grill and made us the most delicious steaks and king crab legs. While it was certainly a decadent meal our protein cost $20 due to sales which is less than one entree if we were going out. And it was amazing.
Since we ate our meal while the kiddos were still up I did end up losing an entire crab leg to Bryn. Apparently she has good taste 😉 Once the kids went to bed Chris and I snuggled in to the couch and tuned in to Netflix. Our latest guilty pleasure has been HGTV and we were super stoked (nerdy I know) to see that Property Brothers had a bajillion episodes available for our viewing pleasures.
Overall it was the perfect way to end our weekend. They may have been some chantilly cake too 😉 I am off for my LAST week of psych! Have a great Monday!
How do you date on the cheap?
