Tip # 12 Pack your lunch instead of buying
This goes for your whole family. I like packing my lunch soooooo much more than buying lunch at work. 1) You know exactly what you're having because you packed it. 2) It's only a few steps away in the fridge so you significantly cut down on any wasted time during your lunch hour by having to go to the cafeteria or out to eat. You can either be more productive or simply sit and enjoy your lunch break. 3) It saves sooo much money!!
Even if you buy bread, lunch meat & cheese, fruit, and a snack at the grocery store without coupons, it's still cheaper than buying your lunch every day. If you don't mind eating leftovers, just make sure you make enough for dinner to have some leftover for lunch the next day. This can prove to be challenging though if your husband eats like mine does ;)
