Bring Your Lunch.

I hate this piece of advice. I see it everywhere. Everywhere! But it's so, so true.

I have been at my job for almost two months now. I have bought lunch once. At Popeye's. It wasn't very good. Or healthy.

I have worked 25 days at the new job. I have bought 24 lunches. A lunch "out" (fast food is running approximately $6.50 a meal now, if you get a drink, a hamburger and fries. Total? I have saved $156.

With that money I can buy almost enough groceries to last me for a month.

So while it may seem like dumb advice...

My guess is that people spend more than $6.50 on a meal out. No one wants to eat McDonald's every day. My guess would be $8-10 most days.

Thankfully, I work in a grocery store.
