  • We maybe eat out twice a month at about $40-$50 total for the month. It's hard to justify eating out when one family outing to Applebees or TGI Fridays can buy a weeks worth of groceries. If we do eat out it's the food court at the mall or Denny's for breakfast

  • we probably eat out twice a week about 25 for lunches and 50 for dinners. so about 300 or so a month... thats 4600 a yr.... we should cut down i think. Eating out has sky rocketed and is really expensive now

  • About once a week to somewhere nice, about 100.00 for 2 adults and 2 children..PF Chang's, Outback, Olive Garden..About once a week I let the kids get Mickey D's and they get chicken nuggets and apples and ice cream and meet up with their friends and play , that's about 10.00..

  • Maybe once every two to three months. We used to eat out all the time, until we realized how much money we are wasting. Now we just buy food that we like and eat at home. YUMM.

    When we do eat out it's usually with a gift card and a coupon... so for sure less than $20 for the three of us.

  • I rarely eat out, because I just can't justify spending the money esp. when so much of it is junk food.

  • We eat out as a couple every Friday night. Sometimes we might grab fast food separately once a week. On the rare occasion we also eat out a second time on the weekend. We recently put ourselves on a $120/month budget of eating out as a couple. We each also have our own allowance and if we want to grab fast food for ourselves we can.
