  • Mine WAS doing that but I got on his butt. With gas prices going up and the economy being what it is I have started making him bring his own lunch. We buy sub kits and you can make 14 6 inch subs using those kits. The kits are $7.99. The bread is $5 or so for 14 sandwiches. He also brings 2 or 3 16-20 ounce drinks to work ($3 for 6). All in all he is now paying around $2.50 for his lunch and drinks.

  • $0 he takes a PB&J almost every day for the last 11 years. Once in a while the company has BBQ's they eat or the company buys pizza or his boss takes him to lunch

  • My husband is all over the state... He only knows about 2 days of the week for sure, one he's definitely in the northern portion of the state, and one in the southern portion. The other 3 days, he doesn't know until he gets there...

  • He might eat out 2x a month, and like your DH spend $5. Other than that he brings his lunch to work.

  • He spends about $3.00, they have a cafeteria and he buys some kind of wrap or salad every day. That is what he uses his spending money for. We get $20 a week to spend on whatever we want.

  • Both DH and I probably eat "out" for lunch 2 or 3 days/month. Other days we pack. Total cost about $25-$30 for the both of us each month.

  • My Dh is awful with this. He takes $200/mo. He always runs out, but refuses to come home or take his lunch. We have discussions about this every paycheck.
