Brown-Bag It & Save $

PBJ sandwich

How much money do you spend each week for work lunches? Do you run to the fast food drive-thru or meet a friend or colleague for a sit-down lunch a few days a week? When you do the math on these occasional outings, the numbers may shock you. But, for just a few dollars and several minutes of your time, you can prepare something delicious at home. 

I get it - you’re busy. And you love that little diner near your office. That’s why I'm not telling you to go cold turkey on the sushi rolls and personal pizzas. I'm only challenging you to brown-bag it once a week. I am a big fan of theme days, so for me every Thursday is peanut butter and jelly day. My coworkers know that without fail, there will be a PBJ sandwich in my lunch bag on the fourth day of each work week. It was become somewhat of a tradition for me, along with Ice Cream Night on Tuesdays and Wine Wednesdays.

So, back to brown-bagging it - don’t leave your lunch prep for the morning madness; do it the night before. Also, make sure you have all the ingredients on hand before Monday rolls around by jotting them down on the weekly grocery list. 

Changing a long-standing habit is never easy. Are you up to the challenge? I suggest starting with PBJ day this Thursday. Enjoy the homemade lunch and extra cash you will save!
