So lately I've looked at my bank account and I was checking on what I spend the most on and it's food. Just mainly when me and my boyfriend go out, we spend a lot on food. Either he pays or I pay or we buy something for both of us and split the bill, we tend to spend on food every time we go out. We don't live together because we're still young. How can we spend less on food? Any ideas?

Go to restaurants at home. That is, learn to cook fabulous meals at home. It's romantic to do this together as you learn. My best dates with my wife are when we are cooking together. Tonight, it'll be ribeyes, gourmet baked potatoes, and cabernet sauvignon.1

Well you can do a lot of things:
You can try splitting appetizers and meals between the two of you. I did this a lot in my youth since half of the time we wouldn't finish all of what we ate anyway
You can actually buy a few groceries/snacks between the two of you and MAKE food.
You can go to cheaper places to eat, or stop at one of those superstores and grab something like a sandwich and take it with you while you do something else.
Maybe eat before you go out and have a date that doesn't center around eating.
To name a few.0
