Add the costs for dinner everyday and you start to miss the days when you used to find food in the fridge at all times when living at home
Extremely hard putting up with my parents but I'm staying home till they literally kick me out ...Mom's cooking will never get old and I take left overs for lunch every day, its probably one of the bigger reasons why I could afford a BMW

Make my lunch Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Eat out, tuesday and thursday. I will spend around 7-10 dollars when going out. $25-35 on gas every other week. Breakfast is a must for me before work or else I'll die before lunch time.

Yea being that I go to the gym my body needs a meal, i.e. breakfast, immediately upon waking up

Yea that would be too close to a full paycheck for me...Some of my friends that also still live home do not take advantage of and do not understand the value of bringing in lunch to work (Great health benefits as you can be sure the food wasn't tampered with, you know what your really getting when you eat it, the huge monthly savings, etc.)

I LOVE MOM'S COOKING!!!

When I was in college, and saving all the money I could, I remember Campbell's soups, 5/$5 saved a bunch of money for lunch time.

spend about 10, sometimes 15 max on lunch per week. Mostly just cook a bit more during dinner and have leftovers for next day. Saves about 150 bucks a month that i can blow on other stupid stuff
