Nix the Lunch Breaks with Co-workers and Save Big

If you are one of the many people who are wondering why you always fall short on your budget, it is actually your daily spending which is eating up your budget without you knowing it. More likely it is your lunch breaks with your co-workers. Nixing the lunch breaks will therefore allow you to better manage and control your financial resources. Basically, it all comes down to how much you are spending on your daily lunch with your co-workers. The average cost of lunch is $10, multiply this by twenty in a month that is $200. That does not include the cost of gas you spend going to and from the restaurant. And that is just the average. Most often you and your co-workers chose a more expensive restaurant at least once a week. That means additional money you spend on just lunch. Bringing your own brown bag is not as costly. You will probably spend around $2. Compute that in a year and you will be surprised at how much you can save by nixing lunch breaks with your co-workers. Really, lunch breaks with co-workers is just a very expensive habit.

On the other hand, when you bring your own lunch, not only will you be able to control your spending, you will also be able to manage your diet better. In fact, you can take this as an opportunity to better manage your finances and your health. You can prepare healthier lunch and drinks instead of eating unhealthy lunch everyday. You can actually make use of several online sites that offer ways to prepare affordable and yet tasty and healthy meals. Some of these sites are really helpful especially for those who do not have time to prepare an elaborate meal.  Aside from bringing your own lunch and snacks, bringing your own drinks can also save you hundreds of dollars in a year. Just consider how much you spend on vending machines in a month. All in all, this is just a matter of being in charge of your health and spending. Once you see the benefits of bringing your own lunch, you might even end up encouraging your co-workers to do the same.
