How much do you spend on eating outside

As the topic states, how much do you spend in a month on eating outside?
This includes fast food, restaurants, starbucks et al. I just checked my last month spending and it was close to $900

I always referred to it as eating "out". Outside to me means literally outside of a building. Do some people call it "outside"?

I spend about $200-300 a month eating out, but wanting to change that.

Almost nothing these days, maybe $5-10 bucks a week here and there for a sandwich or a slice of pizza. The wife spends a bit more buying lunch at work, usually a salad from her cafeteria. Dinner wise, nothing. Back in the day, that number used to be in the thousands per month.

You are right. Eating "out" is the more colloquial expression. Outside can literally mean eating in your lawn

That is what I thought too...nothing much. That is until I started adding up the various eateries on the weekday, plus the weekend nights out.

Around $400-500 per month. I wish it were less though.

100-200/ mo? Damn. That's a meal out with the wife and friends usually. Now that we got a kid in the mix, I'd say 300-500 / mo but that number can get blown out depending on friends/fam that come to town.

When single and w/o a kid, I'd say around 1500/mo. between me and wife. I like wasting money on food and drink.

Usually we do one meal a month at an actual restaurant. Then there are the unfortunate occasions where we have to hit up fast food or order delivery.

I simply don't want to spend more than $200 a month on eating out. Not worth it.

jesus christ! $900/mo, 1500/mo?!!!!

wife and i eat out maybe once a week for both lunch on dinner. in an average month maybe it's 6 times x $35 = $200-300 per month.

This. I thought I ate out a lot (twice a week work lunch, one lunch and one dinner a week with the wife) and our budget/expense is right around $350/month for the two of us.

I usually keep the food part of eating out under $100/mo. The alcohol is a different story, as a single guy in my 20s my average monthly bar tab total is about $350-$450. More than that if I leave town for a weekend.
