About $150-$200 per week the last 3-4 months. I'm ordering out 3-4x a week currently. Sometimes for myself, sometimes for my family of 5. Before that not much.

About $100-$150 per week on takeout for myself.
It's about the same as what I was spending last year.

Around 200/week on takeout/delivery since March. Definitely higher since covid19 as we get bored cooking at home and I wfh now so I get bored at lunch too

Definitely ordering way more takeout/delivery since there's less things for us to do (or choose to do) in terms of travel/going out.

Trying way more places too than before

Can't put a dollar value totally as they have ranged but one dinner a week from a non chain type of establishment.

We've had some 20 dollar meals for 2 of us and we have also had some 60 dollar Chinese feasts for 2 of us that last multiple days

Probably around $50 a week. Which considering I used to spend more than that on lunches just myself pre-pandemic, is a huge reduction.

It probably averages out to about $10/week. A few trips to McDonald's drivethru and maybe every second week we go to Timmy's for a coffee, just to get out of the house. We never spent big money before covid anyway, our biggest splurge was about $30 every Monday at Wimpey's.

Not much, restaurants are pretty expensive now too even if pickup.
Maybe once a month for craving but not using any delivery service as its crazy expensive i heard.

$20-30 per month. We get pizza once a month. We get enough to feed 3 people for a few meals. No other take out.

I'm ordering a lot more but not just because of covid, it's also because these delivery apps are offering unbelievable promos that I cannot say no.

DoorDash was offering 75% off
UberEats was offering 50% off
Skip was offering $10 OFF

The past 9 days I've been eating california sanwiches, $5 veal minus $10 OFF and I was only paying the tax. A few days I splurged and added a pop and toppings so the most I've paid was $1.70. So what I paid in those 9 days is what one sandwich with a pop would have costed me in one visit.

If you're referring to "fast food" takeout, since March 2020, I've maybe spent $20 in total so this works out to ~$2.25/month and this was due to me picking up something at a fast food restaurant after having spent the morning grocery shopping (twice). I've been working from home since March 2020 and when not working from home and working in the office, I would eat at restaurants about 4 times per week.

I haven't done any delivery in 2020 and don't believe I did any delivery in 2019 either.

I spend on average $80 dollars a month on Restaurant Takeout. I do not go hard on restaurants, i am very conservative with my money and we are good cooks but we get tired of cooking and want a break from always cooking and choose takeout once in a blue moon.

Apart from regular takeout from restaurants, i have actually switched to a lot of those meal prep services like Hello Fresh or Good Food, which is like $50 or $60 per week.
