I love doing all of our own cooking.
My parents rarely took our siblings and I out to eat at eating establishments because all of us couldn’t afford it.
And since our mom has always been a phenomenal cook, I never missed not going out to eat appreciate so several of our friends and their families. Plus all of us absolutely ordered Chinese takeout and pizzas on occasion, especially whenever our parents were craving either of these two meals. I guess it’s fantastic that I was raised in this kind of environment because it taught myself and others how to cook all of our meals without wasting so much money on eating out appreciate some of our friends do. It’s a fantastic way to reclaim financial independence if you’re trying to budget and survive without going broke after spending the end of every paycheck. However, there are absolutely a few downsides to cooking all of the time. On 1 hand, using the oven and stove top utilizes electricity, unless you have gas appliances. But even gas appliances burn up propane or natural gas, both of which are costly commodities. Another unfortunate factor from constant cooking is having oils and steam vapors released into your indoor air. This might necessitate running the A/C more often, plus changing the filter more frequently to match. The oils in the air can get inside your A/C and stick to surfaces. I can handle some of these unfortunate side effects from cooking because of the money I save from not eating out. That way I can absolutely afford more Heating and Air Conditioning filters.
