How Costly is Eating Out


Who doesn’t enjoy dining out? It’s convenient, and if you pick the right place to eat, delicious. Plus, with services like Uber Eats, you can have the food you would typically pick up delivered instead. Yet, dining out can be costly. How costly? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American household spends about $3,000 a year in restaurants. That’s $3,000 that could’ve potentially been used to fund retirement or even go on an exotic vacation.

Knowing this, it would be great to pick up a new skill that would help you reduce some of your annual costs and help satisfy your appetite. That skill is cooking. The average meal at home costs $4 per person. Deciding to cook at home can save you on average $40 a month. Cooking is not only a great way to save money, but it’s also typically a healthier option.

Make the decision to save some money by cooking at home. Your bank account will thank you.
