# 26. Get dinner out only 5 times for 1 month
We blew this one out of the water in November. Not only were we able to to eat dinner out only 5 times, but we also were able to go the whole month on only one trip to the market. That is a pretty amazing feat!
With the schedules that we both have sometimes it is very hard not to just go out or pick something up. We decided to try it out in November due to the fact that we could spend the extra money we use on eating out for Christmas presents. It worked out perfectly. I made a ton of slow cooker recipes, soups and salads. I made sure that I planned out dinners that we had the supplies for and each night we were able to pick out what we were in the mood for. The only times we went out to eat where for special occasions or when we felt we really needed to get out with friends.
