Well the results are in.  It seems you're going to spend a couple of grand this year on take out.

According a survey done by a British coupon site called VoucherCodes, if you're average, you'll spend around $2006.00 a year on takeout food.

They say the average cost of takeout is $14, so that works out to 144 times a year, or once every two and half days.  As the math continues, that's 12 meals a month, which will cost $167.

It seems men eat more takeout than women.  Guys do it 151 times a year, while women will eat out (phrasing) 126 times a year.

Reasons seem to be that people, between the ages of 25 and 35, say they don't have the time to cook at home, and they really don't want to.  Which is why they spend $4,000 dollars a year on takeout, which is twice as much as people over 45.

Oh, by the way, it seems that Chinese food is the most popular choice.  Sorry Mexico.
