    Buy food ready to eat from a local business.  The food is bought ready to eat.  Examples would be buy food from: Pizza Hut, Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Olive Garden, Ryan's, Hard Rock Cafe, etc.

    Once every two months...otherwise I'd be a bit of a, well, hefty type of person

    I only do that maybe once or twice a month.  I used to do that so much more often, but I can't afford to do that anymore.

    I probably eat out 4-10 times a month.  I try not to eat out to much because it is unhealthy.  When I do eat out, I will usually use a coupon to save some money.

    My husband and I go to the diner a couple times a month and McDonalds every once in a blue moon. We save money all year just to go out for our anniversary every year. It is way too expensive to eat out.

    we order out every Wednesday because it's an impossibly long day for me, so we always order take out and I pick it up on my way home so I don't have to cook. It's usually either Chinese or incredibly fresh sub sandwiches from small, family owned sub shops.

    Since I have gotten pregnant I noticed I eat a lot of fast food. Mostly fries and the big mac sauce, but I cant help that... I want to eat it on everything.

    When my younger son left for college, my husband and I became empty-nesters. It was tough learning to cook for just 2 again without having a lot of leftovers, so we started eating out a lot (too much). But we both started gaining weight even though we didn't eat fast food. So now I cook more at home. it's cheaper and healthier.

    We probably eat out now maybe twice a month.

    I'm not big on eating out. I much rather would cook a big dinner to feed my family a balanced meal. Nothing beats loving from the kitchen.

    Probably 3 times a week we bring food in.  I hate cooking but it would be healthier to do so.

    Three to four times a month.  I prefer to cook in though. 

    I eat out or bring take out in when I have had a very busy day out side my home and know I will be too tired to fix something for my son and me.

    Way too much - sometimes even twice a day!!  Probably more than 25 times!!  It's a combination of drive-thrus, carryouts, and actual sit down restaurants and I know it is not particularly healthy or economical.  For me,  sometimes it's social, but it's more based on ridiculous work schedules and the indecision of what anyone wants for dinner once they finally get off work.  We are working on improvement in this area...

    About three to four times a week. I don't like to cook, plus since it is just me and my husband it is easier to go out or just order in.

    we order in far too often, but for a variety of reasons order 2 times a week.  because pizza and chicken wings are so available, we make an effort to order salads as well.  once every couple of months we'll order from a higher end restaurant since if we're careful, the cost won't be extremely higher than regular take-out.

    Jeez, too much. Last year I was a Sophomore in College, and I knew all the Dominoes delivery guys. 3 times a week between me and my roommate, maybe?

    Zero!!  I worked in a resturant and I appreciate cooking for my family and making certain they have quality meals.

    I order in or get fast food about 4 to 6 times a month. I'm on a pretty strict budget right now and it's a lot cheaper just to cook my own food from the grocery store

    I eat out almost everyday. It has become a habit. Unless and until I don't eat something from outside, I feel I'm hungry. I really need to stop this habit. Luckily I don't gain even if I eat junk a lot. (touchwood)
