 Usually once or twice a week. We received a bunch of restaurant gift cards, plus we join all loyalty programs and often get deals that way, and buy a coupon book for our area that costs $15 and has a lot of buy one-get one deals, so we seldom ever pay full price. Another way we save it that we often go out for breakfast or lunch during school hours, and then it's a date for us.

More often than we should lol

Usually once a week sometimes more if we are going somewhere for the weekend. Almost always on Friday noghts as that's when we grocery shop and we're in town then.

Once every few months.

We will get a Subway sub and share, or there is a mexican restaurant that we get salads for $5.75 , so if we can go to either of those places we will maybe twice a month..it just costs too much and when I think that one meal out would feed us all week, I cant do it. We did get a $50 Red Lobster gift card for Christmas...so on hubbys birthday we will go there...it is our very favorite place to eat...a splurge for sure.

Same here, we just reserve eating out for birthdays. Even then its a buffett style resturant.

Never, it gets expensive for a family of 5.

About 3 times a month.

Same here, for savings AND for health.

Rarely... if ever.

Maybe once every two - three weeks.

Rarely.  DS and I are on a diet that doesn't allow anything processed, grains, or potatoes.  That severely limits our possibilities.
