How Much Do You Spend on Eating Out Each Month?

We haven’t done a survey in a while, so let’s do one now. How much do you spend on eating out every month? I specifically used “eating out” rather than “at restaurants” because I’d like to include those times you pick up a bagel in the morning, or a sandwich during lunch. I typically don’t eat breakfast (or have something fast like a banana), and bring sandwiches for lunch, but I also pick up coffee every day, and go out for lunch about once a week. Most of my eating out occurs during the weekend. According to my bank charges, my spending ranges from $150 to $250 each month, so I’m going to say my typical spending on eating out is about $200 a month. What’s your typical spending?
