  • OH yes, we are always running out of food. Both DH and I work, so by the time we get home and deal with our daughter, we are spent. But I try to cook a few times a week or we just get frozen stuff.

  • As opposed to NOT cooking dinner, and eating out?!?
    I have a family of 6, plus an extra daycare kid and/or teenager or two here every night. I cook dinner 7 nights a week!

  • i cook every night, and it is much less expensive than eating out. to eat out my family spends 30-50 per meal that is half my weekly budget for a family of 5! use coupons and match them with sales, learn to stockpile you will find you spend much less on eating at home.

  • I cook 6 out of 7 nights, on the 7th night we either go out or my husband cooks. I agree with others, how is eating out less expensive then cooking at home?

  • I cook dinner every night. It saves us a lot of money, and we can make sure to prepare healthier options. It is a treat when we go out to eat...usually a date night. I also pack my husband lunches to take to work. Occasionally he will go out with coworkers, but for the most part, he has homemade lunches.
