We don’t need to tell you how exhausting it is to end your errand- and work-filled day with whipping up a home-cooked meal. You live it! Though there was never any doubt in our minds that you deserve a medal (or many medals) for overcoming your exhaustion to stand in front of the stove, the numbers are on your side, too.
It’s a no-brainer that you’re saving cash by dining in, but your endless efforts in the kitchen to feed and nourish your family is also saving your household more and more dough by the year, according to federal data. But that’s not just because restaurant prices keep rising--they’re up an average of 2.7% year over year despite an inflation rate of only 1.4%--but also due to falling prices at the grocery store. Stocking up the supermarket actually got 0.5% cheaper over the course of the last year.
So while we know your feet hurt and you really just want to relax on the couch in front of your favorite TV show, you’re taking care of your family in more ways than one when you whip up your signature dish. We highly suggest you take a little of that money you save and buy yourself a “World’s Best Mom” coffee mug--because it’s the truth.
