Bring Your Lunch vs. Buying

An infographic on buying your lunch proves that packing a lunch for work can save you $3,000 per year.

It can be so tempting to wake up a little later or go to bed a little earlier and completely forget to pack or bring your lunch the next morning. Although it’s nice to treat yourself once and a while, you waste a lot more money than you think by buying your lunch.

It starts off with a nice cup of coffee in the morning. Some have their Starbucks, others prefer Second Cup, but the average coffee buyer spends $19.40 on coffee per week. This adds up quickly to $1, 008.80 per year! Then comes the lunch break when workers are spending double their coffee money on a lunch.

It seems counterproductive to be coming to work to save and make money, only to spend it on food and coffee – doesn’t it? Bring your lunch to work people!

Stick With Your “Sammy”

This infographic explains that if you bring your lunch to work, you can cut your weekly lunch cost by 80%. If you weren’t convinced, the infographic goes into detail about particular food items and how much they cost at the grocery store. It even gives you a three-day lunch plan to follow, if you’re looking to save money eating at work. You don’t have to be a chef! It only takes a sandwich to fill up your tummy and allows your bank account to accumulate throughout the week, as opposed to being drained.

So next time you are at work and tempted to get that delicious pita from around the corner – stick with your “sammy” and maybe treat yourself every now and then. It will allow you to enjoy your lunch out instead of putting a dent in your account. Maybe your friends at work will follow suit once you spend your money on things that last, as opposed to that one mouthwatering meal.
