how often do you go out with a friend to eat lunch?

i am out with a friend for coffee or lunch at least 4 times a month, always when kids are gone, I don't take time away from the family...but, I'm beginning to see that I could save that money and have a better choices..but I enjoy being with them so much...what do u guys do for socialization?
I guess I could clean my house and have people over! LOL

  • Maybe twice a month. It is possible to have them over, and it would save money, true. And when the children were little and money was very tight, that's what I did, kind of trade lunches with friends- her place one week, my place the next.

  • Arrrgh! Never unfortunately. I work with all men and none of my friends work close by. I usually pack my lunch too. Maybe today I will treat myself to something extravagant like a salad from Zaxby's! LOL

  • Never, because I don't have that kind of friend here. :(
    Used to be, I could go out every week with my friend, and bring my daughter. It was fun. Then she moved. Then I moved. sigh.

  • At least once a week I get together with my sisters and a couple of close girlfriends, whoever can make it. We usually hang out at one of our houses and have lunch, sometimes we'll go out to lunch. We try to make this a no kids thing, but if one of us has kids/grandkids we just bring them along.
