I have a bad habit of going out to lunch EVERYDAY during the week. I do not cook and I would rather not burn down my kitchen trying to do so. I know this everyday lunch habit is costing me alot of money. I find that I just have to get out of the office for my hour break. It allows me to recharge and hang out with my coworkers and just have fun or blow off some steam.
One of the things I have recently started doing is ordering water instead of sweet tea or soda. This move along is shaving off an average of $2 per bill. I am also choosing more cost effective choices. I now have a limit of $8 per lunch meal, including tip. I have spent up to $14 for lunch before. After I get home and enter the transaction into my checkbook, I want to punch myself for spending so much money on ONE meal.
