Eating out won't save you money, but getting a restaurant meal delivered to your home can by eliminating the other expenses that can come with dining out.

Add up the costs of gas, parking and hiring a babysitter, and a night out for dinner can get costly. And then throw in a 15-20% tip at the restaurant, vs. 10% tips that are typical for delivery guys, and paying 20-30% more for alcohol at a restaurant than you would at home, and eating in doesn't sound so bad.
