10 thoughts on “Do You Eat Out Enough?”

  1. We don’t go out very often, but when we do, we usually take our granddaughter with us (she lives with us).

    We went out last Saturday and had the hardest time deciding where to go. We used to really enjoy going out and did so often, but now we’d rather stay in. Between the cost of the food and tips, my ability to cook almost anything at home, and having to decide where to go, drive there, possibly wait for seating, it just doesn’t seem worth it anymore.

    We usually go out to get food I can’t easily duplicate (like Chinese buffet) or when we are traveling. Otherwise, we rarely go out, and when we do, it’s almost always for lunch instead of dinner.

  2. Forget to mention my opinion of I think they offer a great way to go out and reasonable prices, but you should be careful before you buy. I bought several gift certificates from them to some restaurants in our city that we thought we wanted to try.

    As it turned out, some of them weren’t open until the dinner hour, or not at all on Sunday, and were farther away than we wanted to drive (although we knew that when we bought them). So some of the gift cards weren’t used and our money spent was a waste. That’s just for us, though. It can work well in some situations, though.

  3. We eat out quite often.. normally during the weekends when we bring the boys out for church, swimming etc. It isn’t that cheap but it beats doing the dishes and cooking which we do on weekdays.

    I try to eat out with hubs alone at least once/twice a month if possible. It gives us some couple time together.

  4. Yes, we take the kids out to save our sanity from being home all the time. We only have 2 kids, so we’re not outnumbered yet. It is a challenge – some times are more than others. Like yesterday, my 18mo old spent half the time screaming and he’s usually fine. Oh well, we’ll try again!

    As for me and my husband, we’ve only been out a half a dozen times in 4 years!! I kid you not! It’s getting better now that the kids are a little older. We need to go more!
