How often do you eat out in a week?

I am just curious. My husband and made a pact at the start of the new year not to go out to eat until Feb 14th. We used to eat out only on weekends but still managed but during the weekend we would still manage to eat out about 4 times. Now that we have stopped, it has become very normal not to eat out at all, and I dont find myself missing it one bit.

So my question is how many times a week do you eat out??? Any meal you eat out counts if you did not make it at home and bring it with you. Even subway!!!

these large chain restaurants are the reason a majority of america is busting at the seams. i don't believe it is the government who should regulate them, i think it is us, we, the consumers, who are responsible for limiting our consumption at these places. they are convenient, but for those of us who cannot control our intake, they are black dots on the sunrise. until we say no to the chili's cheese fries and the boneless, processed, buffalo wings, we will always be enslaved by their corporate logos.

you may just want to add up the amount you would have spent going out to dinner with your hubby. i bet you would be amazed. just in my own head, if you and hubby spent about $100 per week going out (for two), you have saved $600. That is a serious chunk of change, especially considering you were always buying the groceries for the house either way...

we have 3 children, eating out can be less than relaxing!!!!!

we get take out pizza/wings once every other week. that is mainly for convenience when we both have insane work days and no time to prepare food.

hubby and i dine out maybe 3 times a year without the children. we also dont have the resources to dine out more frequently. get poor, you will stay in and cook more. (just kidding)

Actually, since starting college, I tend to eat out far less than I did while living at home, which, seems so backwards. I find when I do come home, my family is so busy that they don't find the time to just make dinner so they eat out frequently. It's actually a huge waste of money. I started saving the money I would use to eat out in a jar a few months ago and surprisingly, it's really adding up quickly. I really want to buy a blackberry, so I figure if I save money instead of eating out, I'll have my blackberry in no time!

I eat out maybe twice a month. Always with friends or family. I never hit a drive through. And when I do eat out, I always drink water, have some form of beef, no grain product, a salad, and if they have it, a sweet potato. That's it. I have a list of about 4 restaurants I'm willing to go to.

I try not to eat out

I very rarely go out to eat. It is difficult to control your portions and/or seasonings that go into your food. I also do not trust them to be clean. I notice the letter or number they get, but I am not impressed with the cleanliness of most restaurants and drive thru fast food chains. My concern is also about the washing of hands of the cooking staff.
