previously we do it every week, but lately we just order from outside and have it delivered. it saves a lot. the savings comes from the rice, and the drinks. you just do not have the ambiance, but who cares?

WE eat out almost every night! it saves time because it's only three of us at home, and mom always told me not to cook but rather have take away. It might cost a little, but it's better than cooking for so little people but you have to spent time in the kitchen.

in this case i agree with you, because its hard to cook if there is only 3 of you. when we had only child before, we always eat out too.

we eat out frequently but not regularly, like in some weeks we eat out 4 times a week and some weeks only once or twice and some weeks not at all. it depends if we have some extra to spend eating out

Before we used to eat out every weekend so that we can enjoy our time as a family. But now that we are low on funds we tag along with my in-laws when they eat out. Hopefully soon when we get to save up we can be able to eat out and do more outdoor activities as a family like before.

Hi Thebestmom, Sunday is when we are all together with my 3 children. The normal Sunday for us would be an early mass, then we go to the grocery for the usual shopping for the week's supplies. After shopping for grocery, it would be time for lunch already and we always eat lunch outside. We either eat it at the department store where we buy groceries or sometimes, we go to the mall where a wide choice of restaurants is available. Sunday is a good bonding time for me and my children.

hi thebestmom! At work we usually eat out or sometimes have our food delivered. My family and I prefer to have home cooked meals and we seldom go out for dinner or lunch. We usually order some food outside and eat it at home. It saves us a lot of money.

DH and I eat out way too much. Not only is it more expensive, you have no control over the sodium and fat content of your meals. I live in the L.A. area and as of 1/1, restaurants have had to post the calories and nutritional content of their meals. Believe me, it has definitely changed the way that I order. I always check nutritional information on line before we go out to eat so that I have a plan in place. Still, the healthiest way to eat is to eat at home.

I've recently stopped eating out. I can't afford it anymore. It's just a waste of money, in my mind. Well I try to think of it that way. I'm a broke college student and I really need to start paying off my debt.

We do that too every Saturday with my family but it has been like a month since we have. It gets me excited because I am able to eat new kinds of food, and also it's kind of like a bonding. We usually try new restaurants.

I eat out way too much! Only because it's a lot easier than cooking for my mom, and me as well. Also, then there's not all of the dirty dishes to do, so I don't tell her not to get the food in the first place! Plus, it tastes really good, too, no matter how bad it is for you!

I do not eat out a whole lot because it is usually fattening and unhealthy. Places like Pizza Hut, Chinese take-out, McDonalds and Burger King have very few healthy options, and it is more healthy to prepare my own food. My choice to not eat out save money, and hopefully my life will be prolonged. I guess every once in awhile is okay, but generally eating out is considered bad for a person's overall health. Just think of all the crap that is put into such food, and that is enough to convince me to prepare my own meals at home. Preparing food at home doesn't have to be fancy or expensive either. A healthy dish or meal goes a long towards protecting one's health, than a Big Mac and sugary drinks.

It depends, if no one is cooking so we ordered it over the phone which will in between the house just in time. Sometimes if I order it from the outside we are not impatient. Because the delivery time is usually half-hour drive from our place.
