Clayton and I have been talking about this very issue as we are trying to tighten our belts to save for a deposit this year.
We usually have breakfast out once a week, dinner out 1-2 times and we get takeaway dinner another 2 nights (just Subway or cheap fish 'n' chips)....
I could not be a*sed cooking after a day at work and Clay can't cook very well so this is how our current lifestyle developed

We really shouldn't but we do sometimes I just can't be bothered cooking after work. We would spend a lot of money on food and alcohol

The past few weeks have been really bad, but we do use the entertainment book and get 2 for 1 meals or some discount which does help.
I am sick of eating out, but I dont have the energy to cook when I get home from work and hubbie is not much of a cook.
Once baby comes and I am home I plan on cooking heaps more, I do like to cook I just need the energy to do it!
I also voted a few times a week

plus we are less than 2 mins walk to the best pub grub pub ever- meals there aren't that dear, but the 5 or 6 drinkies that often go with it add up!

But that doesn't count h2b and I buying our lunch everyday. That is really naughty and something I'm trying to stop. The problem is I'm not organised enough to make my lunch each day. I've really got to try though because we're spending about $15 - $20 between us each day
We are trying to be more careful with our money but I'm not prepared to sacrifice a dull life to save a few dollars.
We used to eat out 3 or 4 times a week. I now think that was a bit excessive.
I now try and balance eating out with entertaining at home.

Take-out is a deadly trap as sometimes a $6 pizza is much cheaper than steak and vegetables totalling almost $10-15.
But then if you calculate the gym bills to work off the pizza, I think the steak and vegetables works out cheaper lol.

Every Saturday, I treat ourselves to a home made curry!!
We always make our lunch, never go out for breakfast either. I love cooking and so does hubby so we have no problem there. Next weekend is our night out for dinner!! YAY

H2b has been renovating his house & hasn't had a kitchen for a year so the only meals he doesn't buy are the ones I cook him! (we don't live together).

We only eat out as a special treat (birthdays, farewells etc). Occassionally, we'll eat out at a Turkish place just before/after dancing classes, which is a cheap version of a 5 star restaurant here in Canberra (same owners).
I LOVE eating out, but we just can't afford it - not when we have 3 mortgages, and house renovations to pay off!

Today I ate out for lunch at the Myer cafe, then tonight we got Chinese takeaway for dinner. I eat out for lunch (at cafes etc, not McDonald's or KFC etc) nearly every day (Mon-Fri) and we get takeaway for dinner at least three nights a week. We don't actually go out to restaurants for dinner very often, though.
We REALLY need to cut back, I don't even want to think how much we spend a year on eating out. We're not on high incomes and we're paying off a pretty big mortgage (and making additional repayments on it). At the moment we're saving NOTHING. Eating out is definitely our biggest unnecessary expense, we're going to have to start being more disciplined, especially with our wedding 12 months away now we REALLY need to start saving.
