You Won’t Believe How Much Americans Spend Each Year on Take-Out Food


Americans love going out to eat, but we may love going home to eat even more.

A new survey by CouponCodes4u has found the average American coughs up $900 a year ordering take-out, with 9% admitting they order food on a daily basis. Another 38% order take-out once a week, while 45% do so every two weeks.

Fifty-seven percent say they’d rather eat take-out than a home-cooked meal. Perhaps not surprisingly, 72% of those people say they’re overweight.

Out of all the people who took part in the survey, 23% claim they don’t know how to cook. Twenty-three percent also say they have zero interest in cooking.
