We all know that this is a rather difficult time for many people, but it shouldnt get in the way of us to enjoy life. So I am wondering, how many time do you guys eat out in a month? I mean 'eat out' as in fancy dinner, not just regular dining. Let me have your thoughts about this subject.

We never eat out at fancy, posh restaurant. I think it's too expensive to do that, we need to watch our budget in this current economy condition. Plus, they seems to have lots of protocol issues that I don't think my little brother can follow.

its very wise of you to saves up whenever we can at current economic situation. we really gotta save money, and i think we can save a lot if we eat out less. also i think you are absolutely correct about the protocol issue when you are dining at fancy restaurant

We never eat out at a fancy restaurant. The extent of our eating out is to get pizza or fast food, and we do that less than once a month. I would rather spend the time and money cooking at home most of the time that to spend it on fast food. I would also prefer to cook a steak dinner for my family than to go to a restaraunt and order a steak. At last when I am cooking, I know exactly how it is done, and when it is done

good idea to cook for yourself when you wanna have a good food. that is excellent. I think I will do this method from now on whenever we want to have a good food. its certainly a great way to save at times like this because we need to save in this recessionary time.

Generally, I don't like to cook food in home. So I can say that I am eating out daily. it is my common habit to go for eating out on daily basis.

we only sometimes eat in a fancy restaurant, not because of shortage of money but because the fancy restaurants r very far away from my house. also there is a restaurant that makes very delicious food , it is not a fancy and costly restaurant but since it makes very delicious food i like to go there and eat there . well but sometimes i have to to go fancy restaurants because some of my friends that live near the fancy restaurants keep party over there . many a times i also fell lazy to go to such distance only because of eating food .

I eat out at least two or three times a month. I probably need to cut back, though, because it can get expensive. I live by myself and I get tired of eating by myself at home. Kathy.

We Never eat out in a fancy restaurant, well hardly ever, once in a great while when it is our birthday or anniversary Maybe, but other than that we stay at home. Once in a great while we May possibly order something out to be delivered like a pizza or something like that, maybe a couple of times a year, but other than that, either Hubby or I cook and we enjoy it tremendously. I certainty don't feel like I am missing out on anything. We have the money to go out anytime we feel like it but we just don't feel like it!!

To me I only eat out in Fancy places when I have an occasion to celebrate or when I just want to treat myself to a nice time. But as my schedule can be sometimes busy, that time just dosen't present itself all the time.

I try to go out with my wife once every two weeks. We are the type of person that like to be at home, but we recognize the need of going out of the house sometimes. We often choose to eat, so that is my answer, once every two weeks I go out dinner with my wife and kids. But not always is the fancy way.

The answer for my husband and me is zero in a month but in a year is roughly about 4 times that we go to fancy restaurants to have a meal. We only go when it's either of our birthday, our anniversary and if there's promotional offer. We just went to Nandos to take a break and enjoy a meal two weeks ago because there was a promotional offer of 50% off on the 2nd plate of quarter chicken with 2 sidelines ordered if we use our Maybank credit card to pay. So we have that credit card so we went. We didn't even order any drinks. We just ate quarter chicken with rice as 2 sidelines 2 plates meaning we get 50% off on the 2nd plate. I don't think we will be dining out in any fancy restaurants in days ahead unless someone decides to treat us there. But I think maybe at the end of this month we might get to go to some fancy restaurant to have family dinner as at the end of the month my in laws are coming back to our hometown to celebrate my sis in laws 21st birthday. But nowadays my husband and me don't really eat outside food because there's too much monosodium glutamate in the food. So we eat at home most of the time.

Never anywhere fancy... Until the head of the house was laid off yesterday, we ate out at Subway about 2.5 times a week.
