I find that I spending more on eating out than I had anticipated, whether dining out with friends and family or going to a coffee house. Part of this is a desire to socialize since I'm no longer in the workforce.

Funny you should mention the increased cost of dining out. So far that has been my experience as well. Part of the problem is picking up the tab for the table. I guess I'm so happy to be retired that I'm in a celebration mood. I'm sure that will pass.

One thing you may want to investigate is eating during the day. Typically lunch menus are cheaper than dinner menus.

Good luck in your retirement.
