Mensagem:  Sempre me divirto com nossas saídas no final de semana.
I always have fun on our outings on the weekend.

Preciso diminuir minhas saídas porque tenho gastado muito dinheiro.
I have to cut back/down on my outings/trips because I have been spending a lot of (too much) money.

"Going" cannot be used in the above contexts.
There is a lot of movement at the castle.  There have been a lot of comings and goings. 

I do not understand his going to Spain during this time of the year.

Note:  In these contexts, "goings" does not mean "saídas" or "passeios".
