  • I love this thread! It inspired me last year to ditch bought lunches. Since June last year, I've only paid for one lunch - our Christmas lunch in the pub! My weekly lunch budget down from 15 pounds to 2.50! Why didn't I do it earlier?!

    Hey all. Very frugal day for me today too. Leftovers for lunch today, and some fruit brought in from home. Coffee and tea in vast supplies at work so no temptation to spend.

    Was off work yesterday but today I had leftover cheesy potato bake and rocket today. CANNOT spend anything extra on lunches this week as blew my budget at the weekend going to the march in London! Luckily I have lots of bits and bobs in the freezer and fridge. Hope everyone is having a nice week.

    Hello everyone. Again leftovers and fruit today for lunch. You know the more often I do this the easier it gets for the most part :)
