    I pack lunch in an attempt to save money. I usually have leftovers, but they’re always delicious. Yum!

    I pack my lunch almost every day.  It saves money and helps me eat healthier!

    i usually bring leftovers from the night before. i worked in san francisco so food is super expensive so whenever i can save a few bucks, i do it!

    I actually like packing my lunch the night before… it makes me really conscious of what we’re eating (I pack for both of us) and I always know when I should go to the grocery store… because I know exactly what’s left in the fridge/pantry! Hehe

    I should bring a lunch but I usually don’t have time to get it ready. So I buy.  I know I would save a fortune if I brought my lunch.

    When I had a normal job (hah!) I brought lunch every day. Mostly sandwiches or sandwich meat and greens on a tortilla. Occassionally the trader joes microwave burritos. I was amazed how many people went out every (or almost every) day! It just adds up so fast. Maybe I’m just too tight with my purse strings 😉

    It’s about 50/50 honestly..sometimes I just don’t have time, or don’t feel like it so I drive over to McD’s and get a McChicken 🙂

    I also go about 50-50.  I work in a basement, so I love to get out and take a break, and not bringing lunch gives me the perfect excuse for a little sanity time.  It also gives me a break from cooking and trying to be creative.  But I make the effort to bring lunch too for health and money reasons.

    My one guilty pleasure is my Taco Bell Mondays- I have my one Mountian Dew a week then just to help me get through the start of yet another week 🙂

    I usually bring lunch which is pretty much leftovers from dinner the night before.  It helps that the building I work in doesn’t have a cafeteria otherwise I’d probably buy something.

    My bank is in a grocery store – and we have a little mini fridge so I buy my lunches for the week sometimes and keep them there! Or I just buy a frozen meal at the store and enjoy!

    I pack a lunch probably 90 percent of the time, but there’s that small instance where I will walk over to the cafeteria to get a Subway sandwich…but I do pack hubby’s everyday! =D

    Turkey sandwich is my go-to…it’s too expehsive to eat out everday! Plus it’s so fattening! $8×5 days=$40/week=almost $200 a month! I go out every other week maybe for lunch.
