When I had a job and was actually making money,  I frequently went out to lunch with friends and coworkers.  Even when I wasn’t going out, I’d order food.  I got into a habit of doing this, and now that I’m a student again, I’ve had to break it.  I love going out to eat and enjoying good food, so this has been hard for me!  It’s actually amazing how much money I save by brining lunch almost every day.  Spending about 5-10 dollars a day on lunch can really add up!  Instead, I now bring my lunch most days and go out with friends once a week.  This way, I’m not completely cutting out what I enjoy, I’m just making smarter choices and saving money.  So, start packing a lunch – it really saves!
