I'm a huge fan of snacks rather than actually going home and cooking a meal. In fact, I'd much rather just eat a cheese stick or chips and dip instead of going through the hassle of prepping a meal and cooking something then having to deal with the clean up as well.
If you got a gift card for Christmas, don't forget to spend it! You'd be surprised how many gift cards go unused, and that just leaves free money on the table. Oh, and I bet you have a hunch which gender is best at gift-card spending.
