My husband and I use to eat out three or more times a week. Since money has been tighter lately, we've only been eating out once a week, if that. I enjoy having a meal out. It gives me a break for one night lol. I can't wait until things get better. How often do you eat out? Have you had to cut down on how often you go out?

We used to eat out way too often, now we try to only go out once a week. When we do go out I do a few things to keep the bill down. Unless I really have a craving for something else I always order water. If my fiance and I both do that it can save around $6, the cost of two sodas. If we're having drinks then I try to stop at one, booze can really up the bill. And if we order a side like gravy or bread we always share it. What can I say, I'm cheap!

We eat out every week, and sometimes we even eat out more than once a week. I don't know why, but my dad really loves to eat out, and I must admit, so do I. We haven't actually tried cutting down on the frequency of our eating out, but we have made it a point to chose healthier options, like eating at proper restaurants instead of fast food joints, and ordering healthier meals.

We used to eat out almost every night - by the time I reach home after work, I would be very tired. However with the price hike in fuel & almost everything, we decided to reduce the luxury of eating out. Now we would only eat out twice a week. We would cook our meals at home; fortunately my hubby isn't too fussy about food; so we make do with simple cooking on weekdays.

I prefer to eat at home because if you put sh*t on a waiter or a chef they're liable to spit (or worse) in your soup. Anyway, I'm not welcome at the local restaurant because the owner asked me which table I'd like, and I said, "A table near a waiter".

i don't eat out often at all... i can't even remember the last time i did.. its been forever. we used to eat out more but i have always hated eating out.. i prefer home and home cooked meals. i really don't care to have other people touching and cooking my food that i don't know.. lol not all people are as clean as meeeeeeee! hhaaha.. and thats exactly what i think and it is true though.. because you don't know how clean these people are who come into work and cook the food. i also just prefer home cooking meals over eating out because its a lot healthier too..well, depending on what your eating... but yeah

I really enjoy eating out, my husband and I used to eat out every now and then. The last time we ate out was for his birthday in May. Like you said, things are getting really tight, and I am now unemployed, so that cuts out the pleasure of eating out. I enjoy my meal more when I have someone else cook and serve it to me. That's what I enjoy most, being served, and not having to clean up afterwards.
