I spend $50 a week on lunch

FAWK.

I have to cook more or find a girl that can make my lunch in a brown paper bag.

Am I the only one though?

.... you spend 10 dollars a day on lunch. I wouldn't call that splurging.. but if you are strapped at the moment... there's always PBnJ.

I had to take my attorney out to lunch today... i think thats what his meal cost.. before drinks. I am forced to entertain a lot. But, I will say one of my guilty pleasures is the chicken and rice guy that sets up shop on the corner where my apt building is.. $5.00 lunch + $1.00 soda at least once a week. But, I definitely spend like $10.00 on a mixed drink or glass of wine at lunch a few days a week...

I am a terrible example.. I should refrain from posting in this thread.

95% of the time yes... other times, no. $50 is pretty low per week. I mean, if you were to eat McDonalds every day for a week it would cost you $50.00.

I'd rather eat bat shyt w/ bbq sauce than McD'z. But dam NYCGP, I'm not sure if I should feel good that I must be saving money or bad that I don't have enough to trick like that! haha

I get per diem, but only when I'm traveling. On one trip I got $71 a day for food. My co-workers and I would eat 6in subs from subway for lunch then go nuts and get filet mignon for dinner. That was a great trip.

PBnJ, left overs or cold cuts here. Cereal is a good money saver and lasts for a week or so if you got a fridge to keep your milk in.

Ok I get it. Yea, a little similar for me too, except we only have out of state conferences like twice a year.

dude, cereal for lunch? I mean no offense if money is tight, but you're probably 110 lbs if that's all you're eating
