Create one now! cupcake_ 4 years NOW my answer is occasionally..it's good to treat yourself when you don't feel like cooking but I don't like to do it all the time. bonniebonnie 4 years Two years ago, I ate out or had take-out a least three times a week. Luckily, I started dating and am now engaged with a man who knows how to cook and does it at least 6 days a week. I even attempt it myself sometimes! geebers 4 years Sometimes when you live alone in the city- take out is cheaper. I usually cook for health reasons -but I do take-out once or twice a week. It actually saves me money- unless I was willing to eat my cooking everyday for a few days. Depends on what you get too. MzKita 4 years Its def around once a week (usually on the weekends), the rest of the week eating out and homecooked meals (and leftovers!). All the food in that pic looks duh-lishuz, btw... Smacks83 4 years I think I like the "idea" of eating takeout more than actually eating it. For example I'll be dreaming of Chinese takeout, salivating over it and excited as hell over getting it. the I get it, look at it and eat it. That's when i rememeber why I don't orer it often. Greasy, fried, salty or something unpleasant. How quickly I forget these things. But by next month someone says "Takeout" and I'm back to square one. dcfashionista 4 years Maybe once per week if that, but I prefer to cook our meals at home. emalove 4 years If we're going to eat restaurant food, I'd rather just go there and eat and have a drink at the bar. We usually go out to eat once every couple of weeks, but probably only get takeout once a month if that. aimeeb 4 years Maybe once a month... sonya ina 4 years About once a week -- luckily though, the portions are usually big enough so that it lasts for at least to meals, which is definitely worth the money. roxyb 4 years Once every couple of months for us. We make grilled pizza every Friday night for pizza/movie/game night (yes, every Friday - we are nerds and we like it!). We cook all of the time and the bf isn't a huge fan of Chinese so I savor the Chinese takeout evenings!! tlsgirl 4 years Maybe once every three months or so. On my budget it's much more practical for me to cook. It's a shame though, because I loved having food delivered. Anne26 4 years My boyfriend used to order take out food about 4-5 times a month. I liked it but eventually I could not eat that much anymore because I getting kinda fat. I got Mcdonalds last night for the first time in like 2 months. GlowingMoon 4 years Almost never. Maybe once six months ago when hubbie craved pizza. We either cook at home or dine out. shoneyjoe 4 years When I was in England, there was one week (concert week at the Symphony) where I stopped by the same kebab van every day for dinner after rehearsal. That 6 times in one week is the most I've ever done. By the end of it, the guys in the truck recognized me, and I never had to articulate my order again. jennjennnbubba 4 years 2 or 3 times a month for me, I don't mind cooking for myself but I sometimes I just get so tired of my food or feel lazy and want take out lol chiefdishwasher 4 years Does bringing home a dozen bacon wrapped hot dogs count????? lydialee_home 4 years My husband and I used to hate "takeout", we either "eatout" or we cook at home. Now that the kids are older - they prefer "takeout" a lot more. They can watch TV / play games as soon as they finish dinner. Seka21 4 years Well does Tuna and yellowtail sashimi and black cod count as 'take out' In london the best places offer home delivery... although to be honest I was a bit annoyed at spending £250 the other night on sushi for 4 people.. and we ate infront of the tv. Id rather have it there and have a napkin on my lap for that money! ilanac13 4 years i used to get it more frequently when i lived alone since it's SO EASY to do here in NYC - but my fiance doesn't really care for it - so we're either cooking at home or eating out. margokhal 4 years I *just* realized after reading this...I haven't ordered takeout since almost 6 years ago! I can't eat most fast food anymore for my health, and I have to study everything that's in a dish b/c I'm allergic to some things...so I do better going out to eat at restaurants. But even then, we only do that maybe 2x a month! Definitely like the food that I prepare better, though! redegg 4 years Never! nutella2683 4 years Once or twice a month. Usually eat out and cook HoneyBrown1976 4 years once or twice a month Spectra 4 years Every day?? Holy crap, that would be expensive. We do takeout maybe once every two or three months, mostly for special occasions or when I really don't feel much like cooking. Or when my husband has a huge craving for General Tso's chicken, lol. POPSUGAR Food 4 years I can see where you are coming from, Party — sometimes I wonder, why am I paying for takeout when I can have the restaurant experience for almost the same price?! That said...I still get takeout a lot. Especially when I'm busy. I have so many favorite restaurants...most of them are neighborhood spots and have great Eritrean, Thai, Korean...
