Order takeaways or cook at home

Eating out can cost a lot more money than if you decide to prepare the food at home or order and eat at home. For instance, drinks at a restaurant can cost almost double what you would pay if you bought them at stores.  

If you decide to cook at home, ensure that you do a beautiful setup. For example, set up a table for two, decorate it with flowers and beautiful ornaments, and create a beautiful atmosphere.
