    Ooh this looks like a good idea, I have 15 working days this month, I'm going to go for all 15.
    1 day down on Monday, I enjoyed my homemade sandwich just as much as a supermarket one, if not more.
    Glad to have found this thread as today I added up what I spent on takeaway/buying my lunch (my partner doesnt work) in the last 3 months and it was an average of £80 a month! That feels like a lot of money to 'throw away' when we're on a single income, so hoping being more organised with cooking will help save some money... And maybe might get some ideas from people what to take for lunch!

    Welcome to the thread, I've added you to the list above.

    Good luck xx

    day 1 & 2: fish finger sandwich

    Do you precook the fish fingers and reheat or just eat it cold?

    We have a microwave on site and wondered if they can be cooked in that?

    Good morning and Happy Wednesday :D

    Sorry that I have been AWOL, but I wasn't able to access the forums on my laptop and I couldn't see enough to do it on my phone.

    All fixed now and I have updated the list above.

    I'm up to 3 days now :) I have had salad the first two days and today I have a cheese, cucumber and salad cream sandwich and a cuppa soup.

    Have a great day xx

    I buy the king ones when they are on offer and have them stashed in my drawer just in case.

    Day 3 done, peanut butter sandwich, bag of hula hoops and a kit kit - not very healthy, must try harder next week, this week I’m just making do with what I’ve got in the fridge and cupboards.
    Worrying won't stop bad stuff from happening, it just stops you from enjoying the good.
