Just curious what people spend each week on eating out and for coffee.

Count up that coffee money for the poll.

WELL over $50.00 and if you count "Dining Out" and not just take out, well, over $150.00 - But, I don't grocery shop

Coffee, Breakfast and lunch right? $5-10 a day.

Of course, my wife and kids can add an easy $100 a week.

Less that $25 a week. Most of my money goes to alcohol, gas, and strippers.

Eating out etc? $30-60/wk for lunch and dinner. Brown bag it for lunch almost every day. Usually 1 nice dinner with the wife ($25 for my portion) and $10/wk coffee and various other quick weekend meals brings it to $50 or so/wk

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

My wife just joined there last week. Food has been good and it does actually save money. If the wife wants to talk to someone about it have her Call Marlene.

200 bucks a month for the service compared to 30 - 40 bucks a night going out to chilis or portilos or whereever.

She goes to the one in Naperville on 59 and I think its 111th st. She prepars everythign there and brings home a huge cooler full of food, then packs the freezer. She is happy with it and the food is better than I thought it would be. Plus there has been dinner ready every night when I get home from work and its not costing me an arm and a leg, a guy could get used to this

I hear you loud and clear. We spend 45 mins figuring out WTF to eat everynight and then we drop another ~$15 eating some crap. Great minds think alike.

It's funny though, I told her about this place 8 months ago and she finally stumbles across a booth at the festival. I mean how much easier can I make it for her to have dinner ready for me?

Oh yes I used to try to start that argument around 3:00 pm so we could have it figured out by 7pm

Whats funny is I was the one resisting this, I was like you got a kitchen and a grocery store, what the hell do we need them for. This actually lead to a fight one night.

But then I saw the light and now I am happy about it. So this one time in my life, I was wrong but only this one time and it will never happen again

I don't drink coffee and I brown bag my lunch and dinner every day at work. Maybe once a week I'll go out to eat with my fiance. Eating out is very expensive and that whole buying Sbux every day... wow I can think of so many better ways to waste my money.

Yes the frapps can get expensive. I drink regualr coffee from starbucks every morning which is fairly normal priced. but at least once a week I end up treating myself to a frapp especially if its super hot out.
