Bringing Lunch to Work is Good for the Budget

I was going overboard with eating out. Have a co-worker that LOVES eating out. I found that I was spending in excess of $10 per day (and I am a single mom) and throwing the food out because it was not what I wanted to eat.

About a month ago, I quit. Cold turkey, bought some cute little containers, researched bentos, bought a thermos. I was prepared. A month later, I've lost weight, am calmer and have disposable income. Guess which I like best?

I'm using the saved funds to rebuild my emergency fund. Well, and Christmas is just around the corner.

Trust me, even if you open a can of soup, you can save a bit of money plus, you get to eat something you like rather than taking a chance.
