Eating out: okay by me

Over the last couple of months, our eating our category has been inching up to sit comfortably over $200 per month.

I decided in the last week that it's fine by me. We've been eating out with friends -- brunch most Sundays, dinners with new friends and old, a few lunches with people who've moved away. And it's been actually really awesome. Way better than staying home and not being social. (We're not just going out, either -- we've been having some people over for meals as well, which is also cool.)

Basically, I'm no longer going to make myself feel guilty about spending less than 5% of our monthly income on doing something that enriches our lives.

Is there anything in your budget that you're okay with spending a little more on lately?
