So, you and your friends are all hanging out together. You know what’s about to happen, because the “one friend” who is always hungry just got that look in his/her eyes. You know the look. They want Japanese food, and they want it now. But, you’ve started your new budget. You’re kicking butt with it, and nothing is stopping you now. You know the only money you have left is in your groceries, or your savings. So what do you do when everyone wants to go out but you just can’t?
You Pinterest the best darn recipes for Japanese food, and make a grocery run! Splitting the cost of all the ingredients will end up costing you half of what you would spend on a meal + tip at a restaurant.
This opens up a world of possibilities. Sharing meals with your friends can be the most inexpensive option, and the most fun.
