Now that we have started back to school, I have to pack my lunch each day. Packing your lunch for work can really save lots of money.
My Top 3 Favorite Cheap Lunches:
- Soup. I eat it fresh or freeze it when I make big batches. No matter what, soup is yummy, cheap, and easy to take to school/work. I try to always have at least 1-2 bowls in the freezer all school year long. I love chili, broccoli soup, vegetable soup, and chicken soup. I am on the lookout for a tomato soup recipe like Campbell’s but gluten-free. :)
- Leftovers. Whether it is pizza, pasta, or a hearty meal, I try to tuck leftovers into an easy to carry container and use them at lunch. I try to get a doggie bag if I have leftovers at a restaurant, and those make an easy lunch too.
- Large Salad. Add your favorite toppings and dressing. This can be a fast and somewhat healthy meal too. Some of my favorites include a taco salad or a salad with leftover grilled chicken.
What are your favorite cheap and easy lunches?
