Until the kids got to school we only had takeaway when traveling. Choose to save the money for experiences. As they got older we started going to restaurants so thry could learn how to conduct themselves properly. This was once a month. Kids have left home and hubby and I might not eat out for a month and then eat out 3 times in a week.

I go to dinner at least once a week with family or friends. I love getting dressed up to go out and trying new food. Covid has been very depressing

Same. Its not that we cant afford it we would just rather put the money towards other experiences like going to footy or movies or the zoo. DH and I are both pretty good cooks so we dont miss out.

We use to get it on average twice a week (just for myself and hubby, I’d cook for the kids and put them to bed first as they are very little). Nowadays, we very rarely get take away as we are trying to cut back on unnecessary spending. I used to buy take away coffee everyday but have cut that back to around once a week as a special treat instead as week.

We get it 3 times a week But one nice it’s grilled fish on rice from the fish and chip shop, sushi, then market night. We get home too late from afternoon stuff that it can be hard. In summer it’s more frequent. The fish on rice in particular.
My kids aren’t big eaters though so it rarely costs more than $15 for all 3 of us.

I'm a total foodie & love food, especially the stuff that you would not normally cook at home - We like to do a date night approx every fortnight (just me and hubby) but most definitely once a month where we'll go to a nice restaurant with some nice wine and overindulge in all 3 courses or sometimes a degustation of 6 or 8.

Then on weekends we normally go out for a breakfast or lunch on one of the days where our teenage child will join us. Rest of the week I cook healthy meals and also do meal prep freezer meals if hubby is working away

Usually only on the kids' birthday unless there's a family organised meal at a restaurant. We can't justify the cost & can do fakeaway much cheaper.

The savings go into our holiday fund.

We usually just get takeaway once a week but we're pretty cheap about it & we've been trying to cut back on that too.
