    we treat ourselves twice a week - usually on weekendsand usually it's a breakfast/lunch combo type place like a diner.  If we go more than that it's only because I have a coupon =0)

    we made an exception this week and took my daughter to Outback (her choice) for her 9th bday dinner but I didn't spend a cent.  I had a coupon for a free appetizer, a $50 gift card and a $20 bonus card....we actually have $19 left on our gift card.  Woot Woot!

     We were eating out way to often. We spent over $400 a month! And I couldn't figure out where our money was going to....duh! Now instead of having family night out every Friday night plus other meals out we invite someone over to our house and make pizza's, fried chicken, etc. It's a great night of good food and good friends.

    A few times a month. Although last night I was dying to get out of the house and didn't feel like cooking so we went out! The weather has been so bad and I've been cooped up in the house I just needed to get out for a bit lol!

    Not very often for us.. We need to go on dates more though.  I found out that at certain times if you buy gift cards you can earn four times the fuel points when you buy from Dillons ( kroger).  So I was thinking the next time they do it I will get four cards.. That way A) I'm saving on fuel. B) It is prepaid C) and it hopefully get out of the house at least every other month for a DATE!

    A couple times a month whether it be eating at a restaurant or ordering takeout or pizza. I wouldn't say once a week but Usually at least 3 times a month.
