22. Make dinner at home and invite friends to join you

23 keys Dec 23, 2019


Cooking at home is becoming a lost art form. We have become such a hurried society that we have lost focus on what is really important to us. Two things that should be at the top of our priorities are our health and our family. Those are two things you can improve on by eating at home.

Your health can improve because you control what you eat. You can choose healthy ingredients and avoid overly processed foods. You can also enjoy the company of your family as you prepare and eat meals together. No electronics, just pure fun, and conversation. Imagine that.

As a mother of five, I know what it’s like running kids from one place to another. But when my youngest was born, I actually stopped being that mom. Sure he played football and other sports, but his schedule was more like mine when I was a kid. We spent more nights at home and fewer nights running around. I committed to a better quality of family life.

I also began inviting friends and their kids over for dinners. One night a week, my girlfriend would bring her kids over and they would swim or play while we talked and made dinner. Then we all sat around enjoying all the kids’ conversations. When is the last time you enjoyed other people’s kids? I do it all the time and I love it.

This may seem like a social or health-conscious lesson, but it’s actually about saving money and improving the quality of your life. Eating at home saved us a bunch of money. Preparing big meals and sharing expenses is a win/win for all.
