Do you buy a lunch or pack a lunch for yourself or your kids? How much do you figure you save each year by eating in?

I pack a lunch and DD gets free lunch at school.

Have no clue on yearly savings.

Only once in a great while will my DH or 15 yo DS buy lunch while out working.  98% of the time they take lunch from home.  The rest of us eat at home.

In the case of DH, I know that it saves us at least $1500 a year.

My daughter and I eat lunch at home and I pack my husband a lunch.  Like 4 years ago he use to eat lunch out all the time and we have saved so much money over the years by cutting that expenses out.

I pack daily, pack dh's lunch and my son's lunch. My son can choose 1 day to buy lunch per week if he wants to.

I'm not sure how much I save but I'm actually spending more for Ds because his school offers everyone free breakfast and lunch.

I eat at home.  I would pack a lunch instead of eating out.
