Taking my lunch to work...ugh!

I made a New Year's resolution to take my lunch to work 1 day a week instead of buying it. That should really be very easy....one would think. I have done o.k. with this. Early on there was a week that I did not, then I took it twice the next week. Last week, I bought my lunch every day, so this week I am taking it twice. I already have it packed for tomorrow and made myself a note to get it out of the refrigerator in the morning.

That is a great way to save money!! I bought divided containers and pack dinner leftovers for my husbands lunch. We save a LOT of $ that way.

I take my lunch to work every day! My husband does too. It's very very rare for us to eat out. I bring a variety of things to keep it from getting boring. Today I packed a bowl, spoon and a can of soup. Sometimes I bring left overs, or a frozen dinner. I rarely do sandwiches, but sometimes I make them if I'm in the mood. I ALWAYS pack sides, like chips, granola bars, fruit, carrots and the like just in case I'm not full or I want a new taste during the day.

Keep it up! It's well worth it, and healthier for you too.

I have the worse time remembering to get my lunch out of the fridge. :) I decided if I forget to only buy something off the $1 menu and that is it. No drink etc. That has helped keep costs down when I forget or don't have anything to take.

I think I responded when you posted this the first time. It is a great way to save money. The way my DH remembered to take his is he only put $1-$2 in his wallet and left his credit card at home. One day of going hungry and he hasn't forgotten since.

Good Luck remembering

I think once you realize how much money you're saving, it'll be less of a chore for you. I think it's great to pack our own lunch - less expensive and you have a better idea of what's in it - therefore, you can eat healthier. Most people on the run during a lunch break eat garbage.

Thanks for following my blog, btw.
