Pack Your Lunch and Save $3,000 a Year
A reader sent me a link to this infographic she helped create after seeing my post on healthy, cheap eating. I work from home now, but I remember the days I worked in an office and spent an atrocious amount of money on going out for lunch or picking something up from the crappy deli on the first floor. It seemed like the only time I brought a lunch was when I was broke as a joke for whatever reason and knew I couldn’t justify spending 8 bucks on a tuna melt. If I went back to working in an office today, there’s no doubt I would pack lunches on the regular because of the amount of money and calories it saves. Plus I’ve become a total cheapass and would probably crave greek yogurt all day if I didn’t have some on hand.
Check out the handy infographic Allison made for CreditScore.net. I’m dubious about some of the numbers on how much it costs to buy food to pack a lunch, but that’s because I remembered <hipster>the last bread and apples I bought was 6 dollar oat bread and organic honeycrisp apples</hipster>. Even then, since I’m sure the average person spends more than $1.49 on a loaf of bread, it’s still cheaper than daily fast food.
