My husband and I had many talks about how much we were spending eating out. It was A LOT at one point.
The thing is, I totally understood why he would snack the way he did because early on into his career I went on a ride along with one of his co-workers. I gained even more appreciation for him and his career but I also saw how difficult it was for him to even get a chance to eat. And when he did get that chance, he had to take it. So that meant he would quickly stop off at a convenient store or drive-thru for a bite to eat. I just couldn’t blame him. I was hungry in between every call, too and I hadn’t packed nearly enough food for the night.
Bottom line, we just weren’t organized and prepared for meal times AT ALL. We needed some sort of system for our ever-changing schedule and his long shift hours.
That’s when we started meal planning and found a way to be prepared for every meal and have plenty of snacks for his shift. This cut our expenses drastically down on eating out and we never stress over meal time anymore.
