While we spent most of the month at home, the results are influenced by four days away at the Final Cut Pro X Creative Summit and an pop-up restaurant meal.
The averages for this month:
- Lunch prepared at home $2.12 ($3.66 in September)
- Lunch eaten or purchased outside the home: $9.05 ($12.72)
- Dinner eaten at home: $5.31 ($5.86)
- Dinner eaten out: $26.32 ($26.28)
Our most expensive meal was the pop-up restaurant at $64.00 per serve.
Had we purchased every lunch and prepared none it would have cost us $280.55 per person in October. We actually spent $33.95 for lunches at home plus $126.67 for lunches purchased or eaten out: $160.62.
Had we purchased every evening meal out and prepared none at home, it would have cost us $815.92. We actually spent $116.87 for dinners at home and $157.92 for dinners out: $274.79.
We saved $661 by preparing and eating most meals at home.
