Are you in the habit of bringing your lunch to work? If not, you should be! On average, the typical homemade lunch costs $2-3. How much do you spend when you eat out every day at the office? $5? $10? Think of how much you could be saving in a year if you brown-bagged during the workweek instead of going out.
- $5 per lunch x 5 days a week x 52 weeks in a year = $1300 per year spent on eating lunch out
- $2 per lunch x 5 days a week x 52 weeks in a year = $520 per year spent on bringing your lunch to work
That’s a savings of $780 per year, and that’s if you only spend $5 each day.
Most people probably know that bringing lunch to work is the cheapest option, but the hard part is actually doing it. To find out how to make this a habit, and to save yourself hundreds of dollars a year, check out my post over on the Twisted Pencil Blog. Start saving money on lunches now!
