Seems obvious, but eating out is extremely expensive! A few bucks here and there may seem harmless, but when you do the math, you’re wasting a ton of money by trying to save time or “treat” yourself. Any clue how much money you spent last time you grabbed something on the go? Was it $10, $15, $2o + Tip?
