Eating out at work + found money

April 17th, 2009 at 05:59 pm

I've done really bad this week with spending money on lunches. Normally, I try to only eat out *maybe* once every 2 weeks. Yesterday I went to Panera and spent $8.25. Today was a co-worker's birthday so I had to pitch in $6.25 for pizza and a cake. I had plenty of healthy foods--fruits & veggies, yogurt, etc.--to eat both days, but sometimes I can be talked into going out. Some days it is because everyone else is going & I don't want to sit alone to eat lunch. Then other days it is to celebrate a birthday, baby shower, wedding, etc.

We have drastically cut back on dining out too as a family. So I guess sometimes I feel a bit guilty that I'm eating out for lunch, but I very, very seldom dine out with the children. It has been at least 3-4 months since I've made much more of an effort to scale it back. With that said, we would eat out *maybe* once a week, but it was usually fast food.

Anyway, I spent $14.25 for 2 lunches this week when I had healthier food in the refrigerator at work. Oh well, I need to work on this because that extra $ could have gone to my car loan!!


On a positive note, I found another 6 cents in the locker room again today. When my co-workers drop coins, they just don't bother to pick them up, hardly ever. I usually wait several days to see if anyone takes the coins & if they don't, I take them. So more money there to the extra income fund!

Have a great evening!

    Gotta love it when people can't be bothered to pick up dropped change! More for the rest of us. Smile
