Less on restaurants by a HUGE amount. We used to typically go out to eat 2x per week. So depending on exactly where we went, we were probably spending $350-500/month going out to eat and having beer/cocktails with dinner or brunch.


We've tried to order from our favorite places and have it delivered to help support those small businesses, but accepted we were already spending too much on that type of entertainment, so we've really focused on cooking at home more.


I've been working from home for almost 3 straight months now. To say I'm starting to lose my damn mind is an understatement.

And we've basically been told we can work from home for the rest of the year if we are uncomfortable with coming in, or have someone at risk in the house (Alli has RA and is on two different immune suppressant drugs). But our office is still closed anyway.


Sorry, started rambling a bit there.

I've spent about $10 on gasoline total since late-Feb.  I need to put gas in the car for the first time since then when I go to the office tomorrow.  I've been working from home; everything is cheaper by far.  I stopped drinking alcohol completely, have gotten food from a restaurant once since mid-March, etc etc.  About the only new costs are materials for furniture refinishing projects that I've been doing which probably total $125 or so. 

I'm going to miss this when my work pushes me to return to the office most to all of the time.
